Finito!

I love, love LOVE it!

Pattern: Short-sleeved ribbed lace sweater, from Vintage Knits by Sarah Dallas with Yesterknits
Yarn: Red Heart Luster Sheen, approx 3 4-oz skeins
Needles: US 2 and 4 circulars and straights, for body and sleeves, respectively
Modifications: I shortened the ribbing on the sleeves. Also did the body in the round. Knitted 14 inches of body instead of 11 1/2 inches before binding off for armholes.
Would I knit it again? Heck, yeah! But I'd make it slightly bigger and longer (just a liiiiittle)


It looks fine with a dressy wool crepe skirt, since this was cut with a normal waist, but my casual clothes have lower waists and I'd be baring my belly wearing this. Apologies for the blurry pic.

A close-up of my mad seaming skillz.

Another close-up of the texture. Did I mention I love it?
