A perfect match
If so, I probably don't want to know more...
Still, I'm more than happy with how this sweater turned out, especially how I changed the pattern of the side panels knitted sideways and blended it with the sleeve pattern.
I'm working on a knitted-on border for the white shawl. It's a modified version of Jane Sowerby's "Cyprus" border for her "Shoulder shawl in Syrian pattern" from Victorian Lace Today.
My modification is simple, namely stocking stitch instead of garter stitch. I'm not very fond of garter stitch, especially not in lace knitting: I want the knitted fabric to be airy, and garter stitch makes it more compact. I also wanted the slight curling effect of stocking stitch.
