Benefits of all this Buffy watching


Started June 10, 2009, finished August 20, 2009.
12 balls of Wool of the Andes yarn from Knitpicks.
Size 8 (5mm) needles.
Very modified version of Hermia sweater from Knitty:
  • Added waist shaping via decreases and 1x1 ribbing at waist;
  • started lace pattern at waist and not at hips;
  • added purl and knit panels between the lace repeats to allow for flaring over the hips;
  • used seed stitch edging on all edges.
I still have another ball of the yarn and will pick up and knit on a lace ruffle, using the same lace pattern.

It is gorgeous!! It reminds me of J. Jill's sweater line that I tend to drool over. Kudos to you for knitting this beautiful work of art.
