Frills and Lace

Purple Sweater with Ruffled Lace

I saw this sweater tutorial on Tea Rose Home and totally loved it.  I decided to make something similar to it except I used ruffley lace instead of ruffles.  Although ruffles are pretty and feminine, too many make me look like I’m in costume.  This sweater is just right for me and looks lovely with dresses or t-shirts.

Simple Lace Pin with Pearls

Here’s the updated list:
Four down, four to go.  Exactly even.
