I have finally finished the short sleeved ribbed lace sweater from this book.  It took me a really long time, mainly because i was distracted by other projects, but also because it was my first project on #2 and 3 needles and it took a while.  but I'm pleased with how it turned out:

Sorry it's not the best picture!  I used the Linen Drape yarn in cornflower blue - have to say I wasn't the biggest fan of this yarn; it splits really easily and hence is somewhat annoying to work with.  But the results are nice - it hangs beautifully and is very comfortable.  The sweater fits really nicely and definitely has a very vintage (I think 1940s) look.  I wore it the other day to work with a knee-length flared skirt and platforms and felt very retro-y.  The only thing I changed was the length - I don't usually wear belly-baring stuff so I made the side length 12 1/2".  Here is a closeup of the stitch, which is a very easy but pretty lace rib:
