Shetland Shorty from Knitty.com
I have had this project on my needles for almost a year. The weather got cold and I switched to winter projects so this waited until warmer weather. The lace pattern (4 row repeat) took a while to memorize and I ended up undoing my work quite a few times.
The yarn is Filati FF Sailor (cotton) that I bought from Elann as a full bag and at a very reasonable price. I made a medium which gave me plenty of ease, I wanted it with a loose and relaxed look. I made this to wear with a Burda WOF dress I made a while ago, I'll show a picture when I wear them together.
