It's hazy, hot and humid...

So it's time to start knitting sweaters. This is the first one.  It's all lace, and not blocked, so it looks like a rag, but it will stretch out beautifully when washed.

Yarn is Knit Picks Palette in Seraphim.  Skinny stuff, and not terribly drapey.  I'm working it on sock needles, size 2.5mm.  I'm a very loose knitter, so it works out OK with those tiny needles.  256 sts in circumference.  I don't know yet what I will do with the bodice and sleeves.  My inclination is to work the sleeves in stockinette with a row of lace running down the center, but I'll see.  I'm a way off so just thinking about it at the moment.  My usual crew neck, and if I have enough yarn, maybe a cowl?  Or not.

The color is weird, sort of a grey/beige/mauve thing.  I have no idea why I bought it; it must have appealed to me.  I'll wear it over navy or deep green or something else dark.
