Still dreaming of spring...

A snowstorm blew over my part of the world! It's gorgeous, but it's just another sign that it'll be a while before winter leaves us alone, so I've designed a sweater in a spring-like color (out of some stashed wool of a forgotten origin) with some crochet lace to make it flirty and feminine (which is something I strive for in the middle of winter).

It's a simple cardigan, that hits right at the hips, with darts in the front and back and decreases at the sides.

I made a collar with a few rows of crochet in a shell stitch.

Until I find a great closure, I'm fastening it with crocheted ties.

I'm off, I have to shovel a lot of very heavy snow... :-(
