I finished the second sleeve on Monday and put this baby together last night.

The pattern is pour moi, by Lori Versaci. If you are interested in knitting this lovely cardi, by the way, Lori is hosting a friendly informal KAL in her Ravelry Group. The KAL “officially” started on September 1, but it is a very easy-going group — there are people who started early, like me, as well as people who are in the planning stages. It’s a great way to get some tips and tricks for the pattern as well as see the pretty yarns everyone else is using for their projects.

This is not a difficult pattern, but it does use short-row shaping to get the nicely curved bottom edge. There is some a-line shaping in the body as well.

I’m looking forward to the weather getting cool enough so I can actually wear mine!

So . . . I have one clue left in the Outlander MKAL and that will not be released until Saturday, so I cast on a new project, using this:

That’s Wollmeise 100% merino fingering weight. You can tell I’ve been hoarding that skein for a while since it has one of the old labels.

The colorway is “Zenzi.” Here it is wound into a ball:

Wait’ll you see what I’m knitting with it!

Loki knows, but he’s not telling. He has a priority nap he has to take!
