I was excited to start the Delicate Summer Jacket (cardigan), but not excited when I finished it. That just may be why it is now December and I've finally taken a photo of it for posting!

The yarn I used is too heavy (medium/4 weight) to be "delicate" and the popcorns are larger then I'd like them to be. I love the buttons I was able to find at Joann Fabrics, however! I'm a chunky person and this cardigan makes me look chunkier. I thought about pulling it out and re-using the yarn, but haven't made that decision yet.

The photos were taken on our lovely Pergo Dolce Mahagony laminate flooring that we installed last fall. It's lovely!
