I really did finish that ‘antique lace’ cardigan – I finally got to wear it a few weeks back when I went out for dinner. It is really nice and I felt very feminine, comfortable, elegant and sophisticated all at the same time! It’s very lightweight and is really the perfect, warm weather cover-up – just what I was aiming for. When I did the sleeves, I was, at first going to do a short or elbow-length. After thinking about it, I decided that by making a 3/4 sleeve, I could still wear this year round, especially for a holiday occasion and I’m glad I did.
I got my girlfriend to take some photos yesterday at our local Hillcrest Park, overlooking Lake Superior and the Sleeping Giant (although I’ve probably cropped out evidence in these photos, but we also photo-ed two of the garments for the upcoming Fall 2012 POM – I’ll show those off later in the week and make sure to leave in some of our local landscape!
