Feel the need to knit some sunshine!

It’s supposed to be a 4 ply pattern but i’m using laceweight and sticking with the same needle size - seems to be working just fine. A little worried about having enough yarn so will leave the sleeves until last and make them as long as the yarn remaining allows.

Hooray! The body and ribbed edging is done, leaving me with 33g/100g for the sleeves.

Washed, blocked, worn plenty: it is a little shorter than i’d normally like, and maybe a tiny bit on the snug side, but I love it all the same. As Mal Lace is wont to do, it is pilling a bit under the arms. If I were to do the same thing again - i’d probably go up a size to compensate for the lighter yarn.
