The Lacy Cardi is done:
To recap, this was knitted from 12 skeins of Debbie Bliss Cathay, on size 3.5mm (US size 4) needles and is my own design.
I’ll post a photo of it being worn in the next week or so — just don’t have the energy to do so right now. In the meantime, a couple of close-ups:
And the sleeve edging:
So . . . what’s next?
This is another of my own designs — a short-sleeve top being knitted from La Luz Fiesta yarn, which is 100% silk dk weight. I’m using the colorway they call “Alaska.” More details as I progress.
Here’s my yarn, the 3-ply Hebridean in “Sea Ivory.”
And here’s a close-up of the color, photographed in natural light.
There was a question in the comments about using other yarns for Inishmore, specifically Cash Iroha.
My best advice is to knit a good-sized swatch from the yarn you have, using at least one of the cables from the sweater, so you can see how it looks knitted up in the pattern. Particularly if the yarn is a big departure from the type of yarn called for in the pattern.
