Lace doesn't make a practical sweater, just a pretty one. Here I'm displaying the border, the way the shawl knitters do it.
I had Norris take photos when I was wearing sweat pants and a tank - if I wore a sweater like this around the house, I'd pull the threads and make holes in no time. I can't even walk out the door without snagging my purse strap on the handle some days.
I think it will be nice over a dark dress to wear to some fancy occasion. The yarn is a subtle variegated tencel in shades of aqua and off white.
