Summer Jumper project Cap Sleeve Lattice Top

 I was looking for a quick Summer project to make with wool from my existing stash. I stumbled upon this pattern on the beautiful Purlbee blog. They have fab patterns and this one jumped out at me straight away. The original pattern is made in a beautifully subtle grey and cream, I love these colours but my stash is full of colour!
 The main body is Sidar Balmoral wool , alpaca, silk DK blend, the top lattice is an amazing electric blue poshy wool I bought about a year ago. It is called scrumptious 4ply sport superwash silk superwash merino. Its looking good so far, the lace is fine to do as long as you don't make a mistake, it's stressy picking up lace stitches on circulars!
