It was lost, then found, then lost again. It came back last weekend and I have something to show: a cropped cardi!
Now, I don't have final pictures of it. I finished my cardi late last night. I had to finish the seams under the arms, weave in all those loose ends/threads, and sew two buttons.
The yarn I used was Araucania. A marled berry/beige merino wool yarn. I thought I would have some itchiness/scratchiness issues. No issues here. It knitted up beautifully
The pattern is from Plymouth Yarns. Here's some pictures from my knitting adventure:
