Lacy Wrap Cardi

At last, presenting the Lacy Wrap Cardi. After almost 5 hours of seaming and knitting the border, I'm done with it. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the result. Not too big and not too long too. This cardi took me almost 3 weeks to complete it. I've used 6 balls of Heirloom Cotton on size 4 (Clover Needle - Japanese size).

Actually, it was suppose to be a long sleeve cardi. As I was worried that I might not have enough yarn I've shorten it to a 3/4 sleeve. Probably this is better as our weather here with long sleeve will be too warm.

Well, I'm off to another project now. I'll update it in my next post.
