Neekie, Thank you SO much for explaining how I could post a picture without a link!  Yeah!!

Sorry Milliebug -- I don't have a picture of the original sweater.  It was a cream angora -- in great shape, but WAY too big for me and I didn't like the style.  I actually have enough undyed yarn left to make something else.  I'm thinking about the calla sweater.

That is beautiful. You did a wonderful job on it and, it's very flattering on you.
I'm working on a sweater and I'm going to have quite a bit of leftover matching yarn. I think that what I'll do is knit up some matching accessories, when it's done. Probably a purse, headband, whatever else I can think of that I might like, to go along with it.
It's just an idea.    Roll Eyes

Do you think that you'll eventually post a pattern, for your lovely sweater? I hope so. It's such a nice one.  Roll Eyes

Thanks everyone for all the comments.  I'm not sure if I can post a pattern.   I got the idea for the bottom lace from the Ribs and Lace Tunic in Interweave's spring mag -- it's called Ladder Lace.  The rest I kind of made up as I went along.
