I finally washed and blocked Cerisara and am wearing it to work today. I really like it as a great layering piece. I thought about wearing it over a knit print dress, but I didn't want the lace pattern to compete with the print so I layered it over a plain black boatneck tee and black skirt, then vamped it up with my new Kenneth Cole Reaction gladiators.
Side - my head is cut off a bit as I needed to adjust the tripod but was trying to run out of the house:
Pattern: Cerisara by Bonne Marie Burns (ChicKnits) link is http://chicknits.com/catalog/cerisara.html - my link button isn't working in this new version of Typepad
Mods: only shortened sleeve length
Yarn: Vickie Howell "Craft" cotton/bamboo yarn in "Todd" colorway (turquoise)
I would not use the Vickie Howell "Craft" yarn again, though I do like its drapey, soft texture, especially when washed. The problems I have with it are 1.) it has a lot of knots and uneven slubs in it that have to be cut out - creating a disproportionate number of ends that have to be woven in and 2.) it knots up a lot while knitting it, which gets better if you can pull from the center of the ball instead of the outside, but it's almost impossible to find the end on the inside of the ball.
I also used a small "barbell" closure to close up the gap a bit in the front. I had gotten this closure with an Eileen Fisher cardigan I purchased a while ago and I thought it would work well for this.
