Now all I need is a tan to go with it


Presenting another Finishing Friday project - Lutea Lace Shoulder Shell. Now all I need is a tan, warm weather and perhaps an ice cold margarita to go with it!
This project was done with some Berroco Touche I bought ages ago to make a Sahara which I ended up frogging. As I was knitting this it really didn't look good on the needles. Looks best on the body. It was a good knit with some short row shaping for the V-neck and I added extra increases in the waist to make it more fitted.
Okay, that brings me to 5 sweaters finshed this year! Wow!

I remember that pattern from Interweave. I always wanted to make it. It looks great on you!

I am so impressed with all your sweater knitting!!! It looks so nice, too.

I have some Touche in my stash from something I frogged, too. This might be a good time of the year to get it out again.

You look fabulous, and I second the need for a tan! Can't wait to get our tans together this summer!

You are a project Queen, my friend!
