This is something I'm actually going to wear (even after I give birth)!  Hooray!  I love the colors, yarn (Berocco Ultra Alpaca) and stitch panel patterns I added (from my Reader's Digest Stitch Pattern Book).  Here are a few pics...

   

And some close-ups...

This is gorgeous! And unique- I really like how the colors worked together, and the placement of the lace panels really shows off the lace. Great job!

So pretty!  Which picture is most representative of the true color?  You did a great job incorporating all the patterns and the fit is great!  I love the idea of putting on more buttons after you have your baby.  Brilliant.  BTW, your tummy looks cute in it too!  Wink

MairWear-this is stunning.  Not only is it a fab sweater, but you designed it, made it preg and post-preg friendly, and the color is amazing.  Seriously, you are a knitting goddess.  I love the back design especially.  The lace is super girly, but there is something very powerful about the way it mimics a spine and muscles.  Love, love, love this!    Cheesy

Lovely! I especially like the lace panel down the back. Congratulations on your impending arrival!
