Lace Jacket

i just love knitting lace - it is never boring and always comes out looking beautiful. now that i have very little knitting time (i volunteered to be co-president of the pta at my son's school... ugh...), it is very important that i actually enjoy what i am knitting and the end result. this was the perfect project for this.

pattern: #13 lace jacket from vogue knitting, fall 2010
yarn: malabrigo lace, verde adriana, 2 1/2 skeins
needles: #5 circular

i didn't make any modification. no time to think about things... but i didn't need to - i think it came out great! i did use the magic loop method instead of lots of different circulars and double pointed needles. the only real comment i have is the sleeves are really tight!

i am having a problem figuring out what to make next. for now, i am continuing to work on a coat for my mother - i have been knitting a piece of it in between each project forever. i did purchase a bunch of swan's island yarn in a orangey color yesterday at brooklyn general - i think it will inspire me.
