Ladies Sweater - 1838

My one complaint about this company is their unimaginative names for their patterns.  This sweater is from Moments No. 005 by SMC Select. I think they used to be Gedifra.  This is a lovely sweater with lace sleeves and a scoop neck.  I did a swatch and got gauge, but I'm a little bit worried about the size, it seems kind of big to me, but looking at the picture I think it is supposed to have some ease.  I changed the knit 1, purl 1 rib to knit 2, purl 2 because I just don't like the look of knit 1 purl 1 rib.  I am also modifying the pattern to knit it in the round.  This is my mindless project.  I also have this yarn in red, and will probably make a second one in that color.  You see, I need some more nice tops to wear to work.  In the fall I will be starting in a new position and will have to dress up a bit more than I usually do (cargo pants and polo shirts).  I do have rules about dressing up, though, it still has to be comfortable - no panty hose, skirts, high heel shoes for me - so come fall I am going to be the slacks and sweaters girl.

Pattern:  Ladies Sweater - 1838 from Moments No. 005
Yarn:  SMC Select Extra Soft Merino Fino
Needles:  US 2.5 (3.0 mm) and US 4 (3.5 mm)
