What advice would you give someone starting this project? I've revised this poor sweater so many times that it's probably dizzy. But I never got bored with it. Initially I added a leaf border at the bottom. It's effect was scalloped, which was what I intended, but once I had it on, I didn't care for it. It didn't compliment the sweater, but rather, overwhelmed it. So I took it off, and added the ribbing at the bottom, which is much more to my liking. I added the ribbed cuffs and button band to maintain consistency of design. The sweater sat on my dress form for over a year. Christmas projects and other more immediate projects ("Grandma, we need more hats for your grandson!!") took precedence. However, I'm now finished (sans buttons), and quite pleased. THANK YOU, MYRA. I'll be doing another one in wool later on!!!

Great sweater! I love the color, the creative lace pattern that looks so smart and the length is perfect. Job well done.

Your use of a sampler style of lace is visually intriguing -- fun to study and I'll bet fun to knit, too! Great knitting!

Very classically beautiful. Love the neutral color you chose.

Love it! Hard to believe it came from the same pattern!
