Something I finished on this trip and used a lot when I was hiding in many department stores in Taipei was this new cardigan. image

Yarn: lana grossa lux lace in "bronze" (fingering wt 339 yds per 50g 67% microfiber 33% merino); 2 balls

Needles: us size 4 circs

Pattern: based on my Lady Mary pattern; made adjustment for using thicker yarn and having only 100g

This cardigan is incredibly soft and warm. Last fall I became a bit obsessed with metallic colors, especially bronzr. So when I found this yarn, I wanted to make Lady Mary pattern with it.

I think short sleeve cadigans are great for indoor ac cardigans. I was able to weave in the ends and left with about 15 inches of the yarn!
