Plus Size Lace Panel Sweater
Us chubby gals can have pretty handmade sweaters too! I just finished this one for me, me, me! I am washing and sizing it now then I plan on wearing it to dinner with my dd, sil and grandson tomorrow night. I noticed the lighting in the room makes the color look weird, but it is a nice country peach color.
I loved knitting this as it was only the third real patterned work I have done and the first one where the sides and middle were different from each other than one continuous pattern.
Thanks for looking.

I prefer "fluffy" over "chubby".. and that sweater will look absolutely gorgeous on you.

Absolutely gorgeous!

ETA: Is it your own design?
If at first you don't it and try again!
