Tea Leaves, again

Next oldest Granddaughter received my second version of the Tiny Tea Leaves Cardi this week and pronounced it perfect. (My Grandgirls are so grateful and easy to please that they're an absolute pleasure to knit for)

I thought this came out just a touch on the large size under the arms. I could have went with a smaller size for her, although I added several inches to the length of both sleeves and body to fit her lanky frame. Modifications detailed on my Ravelry Project Page

I've enjoyed this pattern and after two successful sweaters, I've definately gotten my money's worth, but there's still one more in the works for oldest Grandgirl. I'll have to buy the adult pattern for that beanstalk of a child who has surpassed me in both height and shoe size.
These girls sure make Grandma's knitting look good.
