{Cotton Ajour Sweater with Lace Effect, knitted by Me}

One more AJOUR sweater in a lace effect pattern, I'd like to show you. This is a 100% cotton one, so it can be worn over a longer period of time. I've slightly altered the pattern at the neckline.
Barty, our 8-year old male cat, is joining me into our garden.
On Monday, April 9, I read Willy's post about Twee breirollen or Two knitting-rolls as it used to be done in the 18th century. Different stitches, even up to one hundred, were done in one length. There were no magazines then. Even some 70 years ago it was done by the students and the stitches were written down in a book. 
Look→ here | right click it, for Willy's post about those knitting rolls. 
This knitting history story is also printed on the Ariadne magazine's page, from where I used this pattern.
  Our weeping peach tree wears a protective cuff...
Wish those peach blossoms would stay longer...
Best colors of spring!
Detail of the AJOUR with Lace Effect. It was really a joy to knit this out of cotton. 
Answering some readers' question about how I find time to do this, besides everything else, plus blogging... These sweaters were knit 'BB' or Before Blogging!
My neckline is done straight...
Okay, this is only helpful for readers in the Dutch language but it gives each one an idea.
For my MIA Missing In Action over the past four days, I will be catching up with you soon. 
Welcome to all the new followers, I promise to visit you soon.
Today our new modem arrived and we had again Internet. Blogging via iPhone is nearly impossible so I've been very active doing other chores, like doing laundry and ironing.

What is your favorite yarn to knit with; if any?
Hope you have a pleasant mid-week and enjoy reasonable weather too.

    The peach tree is beautiful too...actually the color matches the color of your sweater. What lovely spring photos!

  21. Dearest Mariette,
    Oh, another design of your hand-knitted sweater♡♡♡ As Tamago-san said, looks SO gorgeous in front of the cherry tree. I love both of the design♪
    Haha,"B.B" I should learn how to use time effectively from you as well.
    If I had a talent for knitting, former design would be for tiny me(^^;)

    PS> So sorry about your kind E-mail! I don't know what happened but accidentally I must have erased it... because I have close to 100 crank mails a day.
    Love you always, xoxo Miyako*
