Short n’ Sweet

Here it is, my first go at making a garment. The basic shape and construction turned out to be very simple indeed.The lace pattern was quite a brain teaser though, and it took me a few goes to understand all that 'round the post' stitching on the shell. Then I had to be alert while crocheting so as to remember what row I was on, and make sure the pattern repeat was staggered correctly. I used a beautiful, silky, sheeny yarn made from bamboo. It's Sirdar Baby Bamboo DK Playful. 80% bamboo and 20% wool. Bamboo, apparently, has anti-bacterial qualities!!!
