I'm so excited :woot:about this FO, it's my first cardigan and it's lace and I love it!

It's free from Knitty and is called Oblique (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall07/PATToblique.html) by Veronik Avery. It has shaping, which I like, and obviously fits MY shape.

I'm short (5' 3"), so I did one less of the increases the pattern called for on the hip, I was afraid it would be too long.

I'll post more pics later, when the sun is in my favor.

Fantastic job!!! I just LOVE this sweater. I will put it on my to-do list and plan for a nice deep rich red colour!

It was such a fun knit, and I have enough of some burgundy to do another........and am tempted, but am not sure if I wouldn't be happier with 2 different cardis. Go for it! There's a KA here on KH (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=69509&highlight=oblique).

Yes, another photo please. That one is gorgeous, but we can't see the lace and details. Your first cardigan is a great success!!

Oh, there are more. (I had not read all the posts.) Thanks for the pictures.

Lovely work!
