A nice start to the long holiday weekend - an FO!

Pattern: Leafy Lace Cardigan by Susan.

Modifications: I made the ribbing longer and knit the body until it was 13.5" inches long. I also did the eyelet row a little differently. Instead of working the garter ridges, I just did a simple k2tog, yo row. I also made the sleeves a little bit shorter so I can wear it in the summer.

I have to say, I'm really pleased with how this turned out. Susan wrote a wonderful pattern that was easy to follow and perfect for this yarn. Lacy knits are the perfect summer knitting for me. They are tolerable in the heat and can have really nice results. So look for some more lacy knits from me this summer!
