Lace Front Sweater from Lingerie Style

This is the Lace Front Sweater from the book ‘Knitting Lingerie Style’ by Joan McGowan-Michael. I used Elann’s ‘Mr. Joe Blanket’ (in lilac, I think), a sport weight yarn with stretch. I love the stretch…the yarn is super soft and the fit is perfect because the stretch keeps it from bagging at the elbows or anything like that. Another thing I really like about this sweater is the neckline. I was thinking about making it as a pullover…eliminating the split at the front…it would be, I think, the most comfortable v-neck pullover for winter.
It was really hard to get good pictures…I’m not much of a self-photographer, lol! I’m trying to get pictures of all my recent finished projects up.

Have to Start Knitting Outside!

Hopefully these pictures will show what I’ve been up to! I WISH I had a before picture to show you how much we have done.

It was the basic subdivision yard with a narrow concrete walkway and a small wooden deck….no gardens around the house except for the one beside the garage (the one I have still to rip out and redo…pictures in future!)


The overall effect is really peaceful and calm…..I’m keeping the gardens sparse and simple to keep this feeling. I love sitting out there so much that I think I may have to take up knitting outside on the rock!Posted by Picasa
