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.
