What are you most proud of? The fit...after a fair amount of tinkering around and a few false starts, the fit is perfect.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is critically important to make a swatch of the whole lace pattern, especially if you decide to make a dramatic change in yarn, i.e. from wool to cotton. Measure carefully as you are knitting the yoke and try on often. For the sweater to have an attractive contemporary look and fit, the armhole needs to be quite high with limited ease in the sleeve. Calculate your gauge for the body eyelet pattern carefully and use this gauge to make adjustments in the width and length of the sleeves and body. I finally leaned to read charts working on this project and making a couple of swatches of the lace pattern to get the right gauge was most helpful. By the time I was ready to knit the yoke, I had a good understanding of the logic of the lace pattern design, and thus, made fewer mistakes along the way.

Antieno, Thank you very much. I'm delighted that Spring is here and I can wear it again - it's great with jeans; but then what isn't?
