No, It Didn't Get Abducted By Aliens

I haven't lost the Vine Lace Cardi, in case you're wondering. I had to do some re figuring on the sleeves because I just guessed at my arm measurements when I started figuring them out. Guessing at arm measurements is almost never a good idea. So, like the heel flap on the socks for yesterday, I had to have some time to sit down and think clearly (without Ramius trying to climb in my lap, Finn trying to attack Caleb, or Caleb standing next to me singing the James Bond theme and telling me he's bored). I finally got that time yesterday, but Ramius did end up helping - he's helped before on knitting stuff though so we have kind of a system.
As you see above, I got quite a bit done on the first sleeve after I did my re figuring. I'm 8 rows away from starting the sleeve cap shaping (must remember to put in a life line). I hope to finish the sleeve cap today and then I can check to see if it fits into the armhole of the sweater before I knit the second sleeve.
I've got to decide what kind of front and neck edgings I'm going to use on this. They have to be narrow because this sweater is so lightweight and the lace makes it look even more open, wide or heavy looking bands will look terrible. Any ideas?

The cardigan looks great. I know what you mean about having some quiet time to plan! What about applied I-cord for the bands, a few rows of garter stitch, or some crab stitch (reverse single crochet)? I hope that you find a good solution.

Ha! I was going to suggest reverse single crochet for the edging too but Carissa beat me! I really like the lace pattern on this cardi.

Definitely, single crochet. Or some knitted on border from Knitting Along the Edge? A picot something? A couple of rows of garter stitch wouldn't look bad either and might anchor the pattern.

It's looking great.

I just got through knitting a very narrow edge on another summer sweater, and I really like the way it looks. It is just 6 rows. The pattern starts with this so the first row is a cast-on, but I don't see why you couldn't do it in reverse and bindoff the last row. You need an odd number of stitches for this.
Row 1 and 2 knit
Row 3 k2tog YO ending k1
Row 4 purl
Row 5 and 6 knit

The 3rd row is on the right side, so you can figure out where you want to start.
