A Winner!!

Hey Teach! made me so angry, that I immediately ripped it and started a different sweater with the yarn. A version of this lacey number
from the Gifted-Gemmell's book.

It's done and it's a winner.
Pay no attention to the lack of buttons or the many tails still hanging.

The yarn is Eco Cotton from Peru, knit on 5mm needles to a gauge of 18 sts over four inches.

I used the Basic Aran Vee Neck pattern, gave it waist shaping, added lace at the bottom edges and shortened the sleeves.

I like it. Modelled shots to come when Fred's around.
