Another thing about coming home for the holdays is that you get to be reunited with projects you left behind (and never got a chance to show off at kol)

This is Michelle Ciccariello's Aran Weight Lace Shell w/ Raglan Cap Sleeves (which can be found in Elann's Free Pattern Collection here.)



As you can see I've changed it quite a bit, removing several repeats (b/c I'm short). The biggest change however is that I made it into a jacket. There was a KAL started on craftster where many participants were trying to create a deeper v-neck, so it was a pretty common reaction. I also used short rows at the front centre edge to create a long point to echo the long v neckline. I was aiming for this kind of effect:

But I kinda fubared the buttons.

Soundtrack: "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", Chris Isaak & Stevie Nicks

WOW!!! I madae the shrug from this pattern, but deemed the shell just plain butt ugly. However, I lack your imagination. Now I think, I will get that pattern out again, and try to recreate what you did. Thanks for the inspiration.
