Because I chose yellow instead of orange. I love orange, but I made this for my sister and she's more of a yellow person. I used knitpicks Shine Sport in Butter, 4 skeins. Super cheap. I wanted to use the alpaca that the pattern calls for, but my sister lives in California, so she doesn't need (and didn't want) anything with too much extra warmth ever. The Shine sport worked great, I got gauge with it no problem. The pattern was pretty simple, too, I picked up on the lace pretty quickly, so it would have been a very fast knit if I would have worked on it more consistently. Anyhow, behold:
and a detail of the lace:
Sorry I don't have a better action shot, I was still in my pjs when the pictures were taken. You can imagine, though, how cute it would look with a cami or dress or something, though.
Hope you like!
