This is Juliet's bodice.
I'm really happy with it! The RYC Soft Tweed yarn is a blend of wool, silk, rayon and nylon, and it is a pleasure to knit with.
I've decided to garter on down for a few more rows before I start the lace, which is an (I hope) simple six row repeat. I'm going for a sort of empire look, as opposed to starting the lace any higher. Hopefully I'll finish the garter and be all set to do the lace while flying to Art and Soul. I don't knit lace often, because it can be hard to keep track amidst all the "mommy, I need a drink" that goes on around here.
