I've finally finished the first pattern repeat of my Queen Anne's Lace, so the flower and diamond pattern is apparent now. I love this sweater! I'm so glad Linda convinced me to pick it up.
I have to do one more repeat of this motif and then another six rows before starting the armhole steeks - that makes a total of 50 rows. I'm hoping to get to that point by the beginning of September. I'd really like to be wearing this sweater this fall.

The piece measures about 10" at this point. It's becoming kind of hot to work on it! But I'm persevering.
I gave it a good steaming this morning so I could see the fabric as it will be when the sweater is finished. That's one of the things I love about steam blocking!
In less happy news, I think my computer may have died. I'm going to set up some posts for the next few days, but that combined with Niecey-poo coming tomorrow may make posting sporadic for a while.
