Happiness....

you could never tell by the expression on my face, but yes, I do love this cardi and the way it turned out. My husband took lots more pictures and this one is the best (most flattering). I wore the sweater yesterday and thought it would be perfect timing for a photo shoot...wrong. He had five minutes to produce professional (ha-ha) looking photos before preparing for his class, the wind was blowing and the sun was just too hot. Not good makings for a relaxed photo shoot. So this will have to do.

This is the Flutter Sleeve Cardigan from the Spring issue of Interweave Knits - 2008. I used the suggested yarn and made only a few modifications. 1. Three buttons instead of two. 2. Horizontal button holes instead of vertical. 3. Tacked the roll-up cuff to the sleeve. I never did block this and I probably won't. I don't think it really needs it because of the nature of the yarn. So what you have is a nice summer sweater!

A few more shots.
