View Full Version : FO: Fabulous Lace Inset Cardigan

(That's actually the name of it! I am not pronouncing my own FO to be "fabulous"! :teehee: )
This was my fall sweater for the Year of the Sweater KAL. The knitting was quite fun. The seaming was an enormous pain. And it has turned out shorter than I would've wanted, so I'm going to try to add some length.

That has got to be the best in-the-mirror self-portrait of a finished knitted item I have ever seen. That's a great shot! And of course the sweater is cute, too, and in a very lovely color.

Wow! That is so super cute!! It looks fabulous on you. I actually like the length -- it shows off your tiny little waist! Great color too!

I think I like the cardigan a little on the short side. Short cardigans/jackets with longer shirts underneath seem to be popular lately! It's gorgeous!

You guys are FABULOUS. You make me feel so good - and much happier with the cardigan than I was. Maybe I will keep it as is. Maybe I will add some length somehow. Not sure yet. But thank you so much for all your kind comments. :muah: :muah:

so adorable! luv your cable patt
stacey...did you come out with the right number of sts when you got to the end of the sleeves? Somehow I have more than 6 left to BO but the shape of the sleeve looks like the pic.
Never mind...the sleeves do turn out right if you read the directions correctly! I hate it when I am such a bonehead!

Stacey! I just now saw this! The sweater is gorgeous! And you look fabulous! I can't believe you had two babies in that tiny tummy!
