I finished the nonsmoking cardi. It makes me want to sit in front of a fire, petting the dog, drinking cocoa, and reading a British mystery.

Sadly, I have no fireplace, and, even if I did, it's supposed to be 87 degrees here today. Still.
It's a bit frumpy, but I love it anyway. I think it will look nice with black dress pants and perhaps a black shirt, but I wasn't willing to change for the photos. (I'm wearing shorts in those pictures. 87 degrees.)
I've moved on to a sweater I'm knitting for a friend. The lace pattern and I are having words at the moment, so it's nice to take a break and post pictures of something that reminds me that I can knit.
