O Solo Me-o (AKA all about Me KAL)

Crazy Cardi -- Finished. And it was Crazy. I started out with a basic raglan recipie -- found in One Skein Wonders -- called "Shrug This". Since my yarn - New Zealand Colourworks Naturally -- was bulkier, I just knit to fit....adding a 6 inch lace panel at the bottom so the sweater wasn't so "cropped" This took all but about a foot of the 6 skeins -- 340 yards -- with just enough to sew on the button. ( Yes, I was sweating the cast off.....slight panic!!)
I used size 13 needles. Gauge was about 2.5/inch.

Now I just need some spring weather!~!

Here is the progress photo:

Lots of fun to knit. Tracy Van Wormer
