Finished, from choosing yarn to wearing in 6 days!!!!! I'm really pleased with it, I like the colour, although I did have some trouble lining the stripes up in the small stripe section...... just due to the similarity in coolour I think.
I used almost 100g of the Main colour and doubt I would have had enough for the second size, despite the pattern suggesting I would iyswim.....
I like the buttons, and think they look fine, but they're too small to stop the cardi from popping open but I doubt I'll wear it closed anyway.
Now I just need to think about my Tour de france project:-)
