skulls and cross bones cotton candied

i had fell this alpaca filatura grossa by chance and loved both the color and the mesh texture, bought the dark pink matte shell four buttons in view of making a front buttoned sweater. then i fell on a lace pattern meant to run on a table, knit in white cotton and that was it, i had to make that. so i chose three horizontal bands and three skulls in hight, perfect. i changed my mind about breaking the pattern with a front closure and use the holes on the shoulders for buttoning up.
i still had to chose a matching yarn for the sleeves and i think the offwhhite and bonbon pure silk from debbie bliss does it. i really knit my sleeves till i was out of yarn, i just had enough silk left to sew the buttons. i am glad i picked up a darker pink in matt, it does add a spark to the whole thing.
