my latest is done

i messed around with a loose fitting cable lace pattern from an old filatura di crossa book. i made it cap sleeved and boat neck. it's a white white cotton blend, a gift for a friend who is letting me stay at her house in cabo over memorial day

Lucky friend. The sweater is beautiful and you did such a lovely job. Lucky you, Cabo is beautiful too.

It looks like a flock of doves (or seagulls) flying across.

Wow! Great stuff! Just make sure to only let Bob look at it from a distance. That envy puke is tough to wash out.

That is really beautiful, so much gorgeous texture too. I think your friend is in danger of people randomly petting her whilst wearing this.
