Light Blue Pullover

This pullover still needs some blocking to stretch out the lace pattern and make the sleeve caps smooth, but at least it is finished.

The lace portion should flare out more since form fitting the midriff is not an attractive look at my age, but this yarn usually relaxes quite nicely after a few washes.

In spite of the three unassembled sweaters sitting in the sewing room, I am thinking of making a lot of baby sweaters for the long-planned stash of future shower gifts.  My girls are also at the stage of life when friends are having babies so it would be nice to use up the scrap yarn from all these sweaters in a useful way.  I found a really nice baby sweater pamphlet this week at the thrift store with some nice basic sweaters including a patterned round-yoke cardigan that would be good for using up leftovers.
