I started this project on August 1st 2016 and finished on March 14th. I picked it up and put it down. I frogged and started over. I didn't like the neck on the original pattern and re-made it. I tried to take into consideration how this was going to drape (since it is handspun 60% alpaca and 40% silk). I knit it a bit shorter than I would normal and blocked it to pull the lace pattern out.
I am loving the weight and feel of this. I'm still trying to decide if I want a button at the top or just let it fall open or a pin. Ideas?
