FO report

First FO in 2007,yeah!

Pattern: Lucy in the Sky by Laura Chau
Yarn: 7 balls of Debbie Bliss Merino DK, Color 225003.
Needle: 4mm Addi Turbo
Size: secong smallest size (bust 33")
Time to finish: 3 weeks

I was trying to destash these merino yarns, and the first ball went through a few swatchings but it just wasn't what I was looking for. When I first started Lucy, I wasn't sure how it would turn out. The yarn itself was pretty OK. The sleeves were shorten by 1 inch and that's the only modification. It fits pretty well so I have to watch my weight in order to make more wears out of it. Here's some close up of the diamonds.

8 Loops:

What a beautiful cardigan, and I love the color too. You must be a fast knitter to finish it in 3 weeks too.

I love this cardigan! I have been eyeing it lately after just discovering the designer's blog...what size did you knit vs. what you usually wear?
