Comments :

This shell is easy and quick to knit, I only used 3 weeks to finish it. Although it seem tough and complicated on the cable and lace panel, but as I knit it, it's actually pretty easy to knit as long as you don't miss any of the pattern lines. The colour that I choose was suitable for this shell as well, I like blue. The size that I knitted for this shell seem abit larger to fit in me, however I'm satisfied on it's outcome, at least it's more comfortable and airy to wear. There is a matching cardigan for this shell, haven't cast on for it yet, guess I'll do it this weekend.

Changes made :
1) Extended another 1 1/2" on the armhole.
