Thanks to everyone who suggested patterns for a lace or eyelet fingering-weight cardigan! I have a sweater's worth of this cascade sock yarn,
and at first I tried to (again) knit Honeybee, by Laura Chau (cosmicpluto). The last time I tried, my row gauge was waaaay off. I had the same problem again, so I suspect I am doing something differently, maybe doing my yarn-overs the wrong way or something. (I knit a couple more inches of the swatch after taking this picture, and the gauge just got worse.)
In knitting, two strikes and a pattern's out. (I love her patterns but for no one will I knit a third swatch.) This yarn is a red-orange, too peppy and energetic for a lot of the frilly or overly-precious cardi patterns out there. In the end, I case on for a pattern that had been in my queue for a long time, Apres Surf Hoodie, an Interweave Knits pattern by Connie Chang Chinchio. I don't like or wear pullovers, so it'll be a cardi instead. The lace pattern is not too flowery or girly, and the jaggedy pattern looks great in the orange!
I am a little worried about the i-cord edge, as it is rolling up like crazy. It may need some crocheting-down later. For now, some new spring shoes are holding it down. And oooh, I know you can't tell at all, but this last picture is from a new camera!!! I finally saved up enough bonus points on my credit card and got a DSLR for free! It is a pretty basic camera, as far as DSLR's go, a Canon EOS Rebel XS, but it is already kind of overwhelming with all the different buttons and options. I am just using the total-auto mode, but even so it's a swell time! The camera arrived just in time for the spring bloom:
What's that black and white fuzzy blob down there? Why, it's only the subject of 20+ pictures already!
Cammy is enjoying spring immensely, and has resumed her throne on the patio chair. The shadow of the grid from the table makes her look a bit like spider man. What a cute spider-kitty!
