I knitted this lace cardigan for ScotSkipper402 in the geezer swap.  It was a fun knit and I learned the picot bind-off!  Very fun!  You can find the pattern here!  The button was crafted by Ruby Tuesday in STS!  The bottom picture is actually the most accurate color representation as well.  I can't recall the yarn brand, but it was a silk blend. SWTC Amarah Silk - colorway = cantalope!  Fun to work with!


   


Thanks for looking!

This crafter is out of service most of the rest of 2015 due to a wild schedule, swapping once in a while when I can't fight the feeling anymore ("I've forgotten what I started fighting fooooor...").

Lovely! But when I first saw the title of the thread I thought it said "Lies!!" and was some kind of pattern gone wrong thing. Oh well, it's beautiful!
