Several of you were horrified at the prospect of knitting 60 inches of lace. I am pretty horrified myself, but in the interests of honesty, please allow me to clarify. The 60 inches I have to knit is a strip of lace only about six inches wide.
It creates the trim for this sweater.
Although, to be fair, I need to knit 60 inches for the body PLUS 12 inches for each sleeve, for a total of 84 inches. For those of you who don't have elementary schoolers and haven't done your twelveses in a while, that's seven feet of lace. I don't care that it's only six inches wide. It's seven feet of lace.
I've called out the big guns for this one.
