I am still going at the Sunnyside cardi... I got so close to finishing it last week but I just didn't like what I did and ended up ripping out 1/3 of it.
Nothing wrong with the pattern, it's all me. Instead of knitting straight down after dividing the sleeves, I continued to incorporate the increases in the lace pattern repeats. It flared out too much and weird too (no surprise there... DAH!!!) so I ripped back. My hands and my left arm were cramping pretty badly by then too so I took a break and picked up again a day later.
After I ripped back, instead of picking up to knit the body straight away, I gave myself a break and picked up one of the sleeves. I decided to make short sleeves as I want this cardigan to be a layering piece.
So I have started doing some subtle decreases in the body and whilst it is not straight down, I don't mind the A line look so much.
I have another 10 rows to go before starting the edging for the body so hopefully not too much longer to go!
