Thank you Caroline for the kind words! I am loving this course, and I too, have learned a lot. I wasn't fond of a short cardigan either, so I just continued with the lace. However, I did go up a needle size when I started the lace. Right or wrong, the lace just draped better with the bigger needle size. Good luck with your cardigan, I look forward to seeing it on this site!
