Lace Canopy Cardi Wrap

Here's what I have been working on the last few weeks when not working on Christmas gifts that I can't BLOG about! : (  It's the cover project from Interweave Crochet Fall 2011.  I used the yarn that was called for - Fiber Company Canopy Lace.  It's really soft and amazing.  The sweater is on Ravelry here and in my ravelry projects here.

From its meager beginnings a couple short weeks ago, when it took me several swatches GRRR to get the right gauge. I had to use much smaller hooks than called for - like 0 and 1!

 To its current stage of middle-doneness (that's the stage between beginning and almost doneness, right?)

Here's the beginning of the right side wrappy thing - when finished each side is 26" long and then you have to add the lace edge!  But it's going fast....

 Then there are the sleeves.  I ripped out the seams - both of them - because I didn't like the way it turned out, but now I'm happy with them - can you see the seam??  At all?? :0)
Sleeve seam - are you impressed?
This is keeping me sane when I'm not quilting for Christmas!  Happy Wednesday!
