Busy days, but a new WIP!

Hello Lovelies,

This week has been quite busy for me. The end of the semester grading and grants to review prior to going to the on-site review next week. I've spent at least 6 hours each day reviewing grants on top of my other responsibilities. Needless to say, I am exhausted. But, I did do some procrastinating, which I am regretting right now, and started a new WIP.

After perusing around I decided I wanted to try making a cardigan. You can never have enough!
My friend Carolynne started to make the Chevron Lace Cardigan with the pattern from and assured me it was an easy to follow pattern (I am not very good at following patterns). So, here is the beginning.

Start of the Chevron Lace Cardigan
This sweater works in one piece with this ring being the top of the sweater at the neckline. I am using Bernat 100% cotton so I will be able to wear this summer. It gets so hot here I will not need it outside, but sometimes I like to have something to cover my shoulders if I have a summer dress on when I go to work. Summer dresses with sleeves are hard to find these days.

I am not sure how much progress I will get to make before I leave on Sunday to review grants on site. Hopefully I will have plenty of other lovely photos to share while I am on destination for the grant reviews.
I hope you have a fabulous Friday
xoxo Susan

p.s. Kate looked so beautiful at her wedding, didn't she?


  1. looks good. I tried to put this link on the flower bed blog but dont know how to do it
    Would you be kind enough to do it for me please. It is a flower shawl free pattern which I would like to share. thanks Pauline

  2. Yeah! So glad you are making the cardigan! Mine is still 90% finished and I haven't touched it in months. Maybe this will get me motivated to finish mine before you finish yours. :-) Now that grading is finished...
