With a little bit of lace.

It isn't just a red thing, it is a red thing with a little bit of lace.


I am really pleased with the way the lace looks.  The perfect sleeve end for a summer sweater.  Just right.  I used the same size needle, 3.75, as the rest of the sweater and it might look a little tidier, crisper, cleaner, if I redo it on a smaller needle. 3.5 maybe.  3.25?  I'll redo the lace on the sleeves before I do the lace along the bottom.  

As Mrs Spit pointed out the other day, it is moving along extremely fast now that I am on the body.  If I had the whole day to knit, I would probably have it complete or very close to it, but I work today.  It must wait until tonight.  

I should be able to squeak out a few inches tonight.  With luck. I am just where I need to start hip shaping.  That might be a one time knit but if my plan doesn't work as I hope it does, it might be a twice knit and maybe a threepeat.  

Right to the lacy hem, this simple little sweater is going to stay interesting.

I've been thinking summer sweaters lately and your design is lovely. If I promise to not wear mine to
the same place at the same time as you wear yours, can I copy?
