I am happier about this sweater than I look. I can wear it! It fits! It is made of Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton and is so soft I have to hold myself back from caressing it in public!
The flow of lace and the raglan shaping is impeccably arranged in the Lamb's Lace Cardi pattern. Way to go, Christina Wall!
The pattern directions were broken up into numerous small charts for each section, which ended up prompting me to bust out the scissors and tape. I consolidated and reordered the charts to house them on single pages. After doing that, I flew through the knitting! It took me 2 weeks of casual knitting time to finish this garment. Quite a treat after the experience I had with a recent troublesome sweater.
For the moment, I am using one of the removable buttons I have from Jul Designs. I like it because I can change it out if I want a different color. That option makes this layering piece even more versatile!
I chose a neutral color yarn so that I could pair this with a wide variety of tops, tanks, tees and dresses. I kind of want to start another one right away!
Thanks to Paul for the pictures.
