Oh, ok, I see what you mean about the length now. Yes, the slimming, clingy effect is diminished by the shortness. I do love seeing the back tho - thanks for the extra pic.

I have lace on the brain right now.


Dayflower lace is a favorite pattern. I first saw it in Knitter's # 50, Spring '98- a 'Dayflower Daydream' shawl by Eugen Beugler. It is also in The Best of Knitter's Shawls and Scarves. My daughter was 12 at the time but I vowed that I would make it for her wedding! I did get to practice the pattern last summer using Stitchingirl's scarf pattern that you mentioned; see my July 24 archive or the Accessories photo album. It was very fun to knit.


You know the Dayflower lace looks like the Embossed Leaves pattern in Ik Winter 2005 (socks)I never noticed that until I looked at your larger repeat. Having only seen it in the small repeat in BW's book.
I am planning a sweater with the embossed leaves topping off an opaque body. Just cap sleeves. I don't want to play peek a boo with my undies, and if I have to wear a camisole under it, it defeats the purpose of a cool summer top.
Well it looks lovely and I am sure you will do it proud.
Even short I love your Chinese lace sweater. All the parts flow into a graceful and feminine whole.

That Chinese Lace Sweater is BEAUTIFUL! It seems only a touch too short. How much longer would you go?
Also, this is going to seem weird, but I really like it with the two different sleeves -- makes it more funky (or maybe I'm just a freak). If I had to pick only 1 type of sleeve, I think I'd go with the ribbed one. It seems more flattering (although not as interesting).

Really like that Dayflower Lace, too.


Do you plan to eventually offer the pattern for this sweater? I can't decide whether I like the ribbed or the lacy sleeve; maybe I'll have to make two sweaters... anyway, it's beautiful either way.


Anneliese, I do plan to offer the pattern for this sweater, with the ribbed sleeve; I have an idea for a very cute sleeveless dress for girls using this stitch pattern (with a very minor change), so I'm hoping to get that up by...3rd week in July, and then the sweater pattern by sometime in August. If you're impatient I could try to write something up for you earlier (if you e-mail me your size)--it's really working out the range of sizes that takes more time.


Wow, Angela that sweater is BEAUTIFUL!!! I can't wait to get started on it when you offer the pattern. Is it still set for August? This is great work.
