Chevron Lace Cardigan

This cardigan is made from red Heart Soft yarn, in the color Guacamole. I think I used 3 skeins, but I'm not sure, it may have been 4. I can't remember how many I bought. This is the third thing I tried to make from this yarn. The pattern is here:
This is a very easy pattern, and only took me a few weeks to make. I could've finished it a lot faster if I had worked at it a little harder. I used a progressively smaller hook as I did the sleeves so that the wrist would be narrower than the top of the sleeve. I added several rows of SC around the neckline, since it was quite loose, and
I made the bottom edge straight by doing SC/HDC/DC as needed to get an even edge. I then did a border of DC followed by a round of SC around the entire sweater. I am considering adding some buttons to the front.

More FO's

The bed-size blue/brown gahn and a 42 inch RR are going, along with the red/white/blue RR to Fisher House today.
The big ghan used appr. 2 sk each of coffee (RHSS); Earth & Sky (RHSS) and TLC's Robin Egg. The squares were about 13 inches or so.
The RR with blues used smidges of white and bright yellow, with Blue #886, Delft Blue and Lt. Periwinkle (all RHSS).

Bling Purse

Here is the purse I made. I felted Cascade yarn - the overlay is by Artyarns. I made up the pattern as I went along. I had to add a snap, because it did not close the way I thought it might, because the strap doesn't slide easily.

It turned out to be about 38 inches wide by 42 inches long.

I used Pound of Love in white. It took over a pound of yarn.
