The sweater has changed, but the name remains the same

The Lady sweater....well, sort of. You have probably heard me blab about it before.
Anyway, no lace, but still in love. I love the shape, but most of all, I love the silky yarn I choose. Perfect for a summer night. Perfect.





The details:
Pattern: February Lady sweater by Flint Knits (it's free!)
Size: Med
Mods: The only thing I did was knit back and forth in rows at the bottom of the sleeves to make a little slit.
Besides the lace, the sweater came out exactly how I imagined it.
Love it when that happens.

The sweater is beautiful!! Lately I seem to watch what you are knitting to see if it would suit me, or my daughters. This sweater is on my list of things to knit, although I am still on the cropped cardigan. No much knitting time lately.

I love your take on this sweater. I recently added it to my queue. Yours will go with much more than the original. I might have to try both versions now....the queue is ever growing. lol
