 It felt so good to finish a sweater.  It's been a while.
I must say, I am really happy with how it turned out.   It has an a-line shape, so there is a little bit of swing, which I love.  The yarn I used worked pretty well, however,  I could see using something else that would give it a little more drape.  It did soften after it was blocked which seemed to help.  (You know how I believe in blocking.)
For years I made mostly cardigans.  Now I seem to be drawn mostly to pullovers.  I have been perusing Ravelry for my next one.
 I loved the lace pattern and felt that it was just enough to keep things fun.  A little bit of concentration and a little bit of mindless all in the same row.  I think, the perfect combination.
I look forward to wearing this in the fall.
