Zipping along on the lace edged cardi!
I got a lot done this weekend on the lace edged cardi. I'm past the body lace section and am almost through with the bust increases and I've started the neckline shaping. Only a little bit farther and I separate the fronts from the back! I think this will be a nice cardi for both Spring and Fall when it's too cool for short sleeves, but too warm for long sleeves and full sweaters. I love 3/4 sleeves (unless it's really cold) because they don't get in the way of what you're doing and you don't lose your watch or bracelets either.
I haven't picked out buttons yet, but this pattern has you knit the front bands along with the fronts so the size of the buttons is already set (by the size of the buttonholes). This usually isn't the way you're supposed to do it - technically, I should have knit a gauge swatch with the buttonhole in it, or several different buttonholes so I could see which one fits my preselected button. I like to live dangerously though. Or something.
