ANOTHER Miette cardigan!

Yes I made another one.  Suddenly I decided I needed a dark red cardigan in my wardrobe with which to go to Japan in February.  So, I used some stash yarn and whipped this up in less than 2 weeks!
A fairly unflattering photo but I was on the couch!  
I loved working with this yarn.  Bendigo Woollen Mills, please re-release it!  It's a very soft 100% wool yarn, DK weight, with a couple of slightly different colours plied together.  This deep red is a mixture of a magenta-red and an orange-red.
My buttons are vintage stash buttons.  
Because the yarn is thinner, I did an extra repeat of the lace pattern down the front, and since I had so much yarn left I did long sleeves.  I still could have done with a little more length in the body.
These are photos of me in a Japanese fabric shop - it was amazing!
