Back to the Red Cardi


I've gotten more done on the red cardi. You can't really tell from the picture, but I've separated the fronts from the back at the armholes and I'm working on the back right now. I'm almost done with armhole decreases and then it's a straight shot until the neckline. I haven't taken the fronts off the needles (they are just along for the ride right now) so it's hard to get a decent photograph, but the back should go pretty quickly and I hope to finish it today and get started on finishing the fronts later today.

To distract you from a picture that doesn't really show much on a project you've already seen, I thought I'd share some links for some patterns by a designer I ran across on Ravelry the other day. I was looking for ideas for the Mojito Love in an Ice Blue Mist yarn and started clicking around, got sidetracked and stumbled across these. I don't plan on using any of them for the yarn I was searching for, but I love the designs so I thought I'd share. First is the Chinese Lace Pullover - I love the shaping on this and I think it's a very wearable design. The Sorelle Lace Edged Pullover is pretty, but I think that with the lace it makes a design that would otherwise have to be worn in cool weather possible for warmer temperatures without overheating. I always want to pull out sweaters and longer sleeves as soon as it starts turning to Fall, whether it's cool enough or not and I think this design would work for that time of year. Also, I really like the Wyvyrn Wrap and think it would be nice to toss on for a cooler day. It's always fun to wander around the Internet and Ravelry is great to wander around all by itself!

It's snowing here!

I found this awesome site when I went looking for Wyvern (the adult version of the Dragon Scale Wrap in IK Holiday magazine). Agree that she has some really lovely patterns and I am glad more people are finding her work. Looks like she has some new patterns coming up in some popular mags next year. Look forward to seeing what you do with the mojito. :)

I love that last one, the wrap. That is really cute!

Enjoy the snow...we're going to have 77 degrees this week in Dallas!

The wrap is very cute! But why, or why is everything 3/4 sleeves nowadays? (Try to imagine anguished wailing here.) 3/4 sleeves maka me crazy(er).

marji, the pattern is written for both 3/4 and a full length sleeve as I have a copy and plan to go with the full length version. HTH.

I got the Sorrelle lace sweater pattern a few weeks (months?) ago, but didn't know about the Chinese Lace pullover. It has now been bought and I definitely will knit it soon... I also know what yarn I'll be using hehehe.

Cheers Eva
