Finally!

Vogue Oversize Lace Top by Deborah Newton
in Butterfly Super 10 cotton, color 3834

I started this last year on a vacation in Canada with yarn bought on a previous trip to Canada and finally finished it on this vacation in Canada.
I wove in the last end while waiting in line at the border!
Well, I had to stop briefly to chat at customs but finished within a mile after passing through. It had been sitting for a while but, I forced myself to weave in the ends by not taking any other knitting in the car with me for a 3.5 hour drive.

Modifications:
knit small size so it wouldn’t really be “oversize”
shortened the ribbing and the whole sweater
left out the “eyelet” row in the ribbing

added shaped ribbing sleeves instead of the straight 1.75″ of ribbing border

For the neck bind off, k2 p2tog all around on larger needles so it would lay nice and flat.

I LOVE summer, but there are things I like about fall When Life Hands You Lemons, You’re Lucky

    yay!! Finally indeed–man this looks amazing…! The sleeves look awesome and the pattern is so intricate, but I would expect nothing less from you. I love the neck laying all flat and stuff…

    p.s. you have zero wrinkles/lines on your neck. How have you done this? What skincare ritual have you not shared with me?!!
