I wanted a cardi for the cool summer nights. I tend to wear a lot of camis during summer days but come the evenings, I get chilled. While I loved the style of the Cropped Cardi, it needed to be more 'summer' friendly. I used Blue Sky Cotton (2 skeins and a smidge off another).
I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it but it's off the needles and ready to go:)


Please disregard the grubby 3 am "I just can't sleep!" look:) My husband comes home from Iraq in 11 hours and I just can't seem to calm down enough to get in bed:)

Son won't you play me a memory?
I'm not really sure how it goes.
But it's sad and it's sweet
and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes.

Thanks! I thought it was a cute 'summery' color. It's #630 Carribean.

Thank you:) I'm hoping once I have more time to work on a tan, the color will stand out more.

My husband has been gone for 10 months. I'm really anxious to see him again:) It's been entirely too long!
