Little Miss SockPixie and I had a wonderful time together this morning, taking pictures of the Retro Cardi for Girls.
As she was putting the cardi on, I found myself giving her the same kind advice my mother had given me. As I was buttoning the cardi, I told her she should always leave a couple buttons open at the neck to show how beautiful it was , and leave the last button at the bottom edge of the cardi open to emphasize the gracefulness of her waist.
Growing up in France, I learned to love the timeless beauty of simple lines, of an understated lace panel, a shoulder, a perfect button, of simple knits.
The sweater is done, but I still have work. The pattern now needs to be sized and edited before I can offer it as a pdf.
