My First Crochet - Giovanna's Cardi

It was Sarah's turn for a handmade sweater.
I saw this pattern printed and on my desk and remembered that I had printed it quite a while ago. Yesterday I was up to the challenge of trying something brand new. Thank goodness for online info!

Pattern: Giovanna's Cardi from Lion Brand
Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Worsted in Blush
Although this yarn is so yummy soft, I wonder if the crochet detail would show up better in a "stronger" yarn. I'll try again as this was a super fast knit, and I have 2 girls.

It was a quick "knit," huh? lol It's really cute! And I am sooo not going to look too closely at anything crochet -- my knit list is waaaay too long! lol

Although it is very cute don't let it suck you into the dark side. That crochet thing is like the dark side of the force. ;0)
