The one project I was not able to blog about was the Christmas gift for my mom. You might have noticed the shushing Santa on my project sidebar. Now that the holiday is past and the gift has been received then I can now blog about the sweater.
Pattern: February Lady Sweater
Yarn: 5 skeins of Cascade 220 Heather
Needles: US 7
Started: November 10, 2008
Finished: December 4, 2008
Comments: Loved making this sweater. I did not make any modifications (if you can believe it) for this pattern. I did end up making the medium size thinking the lace part would grow a little, but it really didn't so I was lucky to hear that the sweater fits. phew. One other thing I learned from this project is that lace can be easy and quick as long as you use your stitch markers. It is certainly a quick project with great results. Highly recommend this pattern.
The other great detail on the sweater was the fabulous buttons.
