Back from my vacation!
Now I am totally devastated and am thinking about quitting my job. Seriously.  How can I live in such a hot and humid place?  I am a winter person!

Anyway, this black cardigan was completed on the 2nd day of the vacation, and has been pretty useful during the trip.

Pattern: Empire Waist Cardigan by Pam Allen (from CEY New Harbor book)
Yarn: Pierrot Tsubaki Cotton DK in Black, 8.5 skeins (approx. 765 yards)
Needles: US 6 (4mm) circular needles
Raveled here – modification details

Since I didn’t have enough yarn, I decided to make the sleeves slightly shorter and the skirt part less flared.  In the original design, the skirt part looked a bit too heavy.  I am very happy about the results so far.

The pattern is from this book, and it’s actually the second time I knitted from this book.  There are still a few other designs I want to try, so the thin booklet is definitely a keeper.
