The pattern is from Kim Hargreaves, Nectar collection. I used Rowan Kidsilk Haze and it only took 4 balls.
I love the shape of the cardi but the sleeves are rather tight, even though I've only got skinny arms. I would have liked it better if it was a bit longer as well.
Overall I think it might grow on me- it is nice and light but surprisingly warm and not at all tickly.
I don't think I'll be using Kidsilk Haze again. For a start it is too pricey - I was lucky to get 6 balls at a knock down price of £8 in total. It is horrible to knit with, too fluffy and it is difficult to see the stitches. I'm just glad it is finished.
