FO: Eyelet Cardi
I just finished the Chicknits Eyelet Cardi. And I am thrilled because it actually fits well! The last few sweaters I have knit have been too big. I plan to wear this today but noone is here to take a modeling photo.

The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold Silky Tweed, needles were Oprions #4 and #2 (I am loosey goosey). There are progress pics on Ravelry. I decided to make long sleeves and knit the body just a wee bit longer.

OK, gotta' say I'm jealous. That is the sweater I've been wanting to make, and just didn't know it. Love the color, and I think you're right about the longer sleeves.

Good job!
