A Quick Little Knit!

It's finished! The Lace Bolero from Sirdar. Did it take just over a week? or two? I can't quite remember, but I do know it was a pretty quick knit, and I love how it turned out.

I knit the smallest size - 32" and I think it looks great. The lace pattern gives it a lot of stretch, so I think if I were to make this again in the 'st st' version I would perhaps go up a size to 34". I can say for certain I will be making the plain 'st st' version of this. I can already see it in a soft pink color. I love everything about the style of this and the fit. Yes, I will definitely be making another one.

This last picture shows you the look I was going for when I first saw this pattern. Nice jeans (I just splashed out and bought a great pair of jeans from Ann Klein), pretty lace cami and bolero on top. I'd like to get a nice 'green stone' necklace to finish off the look :-) (do me a favor and ignore the trash bag 'full of plant clippings' on the floor next to me!)

Can you imagine the pretty pink bolero with jeans and pearls around my neck? I know I can ;-)

I've been checking my stats and I will soon be writing my 100th post! I kind of missed my 1st blogiversary which was just a few weeks ago, so I will celebrate my 100th post with a 'giveaway'. It won't be for another week or so, but keep checking back so you don't miss it.

That was quick! It looks great on you. I could have done with this exact cardigan last night. We had dinner in a pub beer garden, and it was just a bit cool for comfort.

It's lovely! What a perfect summer cover-up. Your outfit is really adorable too (wouldn't have noticed the trash bag if you hadn't mentioned it!)

I just checked your profile page on Ravelry, hoping to find the pattern, but couldn't. Are you going to put it on there?

The colour is just perfect but I can see it in pink too. Then again I see most things as a pink version.
