....Or maybe just two.
Forgive the spacey eyes in all the photos. I forgot to look at the camera when I was taking the pictures. Smiley

First up is Ester from Knitty.

It's good for layering, but I wish I had made the medium rather than the small. Mine came out a lot shorter than the one in the pattern photos, and also the ribbing flares out awkwardly in the back, like so -

I think I'll block it again to try and get rid of the ribbing flare. But knitting the cables was a lot of fun and it's good for cool days that aren't quite cold enough for a full jacket.

The Ribbed Lace Bolero from 10 Feet High. I lovelovelove this one! It's knit up in a super-soft grey cotton/wool blend, drapes nicely, and works well with tanks and dresses.

I think it turned out pretty well! Good job on choosing an interesting pattern. Thanks for sharing!

I have planned to make the Ribbed Lace Bolero too ... it seems like a simple but very usable item.  Both of yours look great.

Cuuute! The colors you're wearing are lovely on you. My MIL actually looks a lot like you, and she loves dark blue hues.
