Side Track

Look what I have knitted for the last one week. An eyelet rib cardi from Rebecca. This was knitted with Rowan Cash Cotton in Sea Foam. I knit up the cardi slightly longer from the recommended length as I have a longer waist line. Now I'm a bit anxious as I feel it is too long. What do you think? For this project I use up about 3.5 balls.
I know I have been bad, I was suppose to finish the Madli's Shawl but I just can't stop the temptation after seeing Vanessa's cardi. Anyhow, it took me about a week to finish it. I think I still have enough time for Madli's Shawl.

During the weekend while I was browsing at the shopping mall, I bought some flowers pins. I might try to make some flowers pins in future but now I just can't stop myself from getting these flowers pins. Isn't it lovely?

Well till then, happy knitting everyone.

Great Cardi! I like the way it wraps on the side. The lenght is proportional for you, so it's a perfect fit!

The length of your cardi seem alright to me, not long though, just nice and perfectly wrapped around your waist.

It looks and fits just right. This wrap cardi is so pretty, I can understand why you had to knit it! And I can't agrre more, those are lovely flower pins.

Your blog is starting to look like Vanessa's... you both knit the same things :-) That's a nice cardi, btw... didn't know you bought the Rebecca mag too.

Looks great! I can't believe you and Van only used so little amount of yarn.

Wow, I love it. It also looks cool in a less fuzzy yarn as the mohair. Great way to modify!
