Late again! Yet another crochet gift finished....

I have finally finished my last mother's day gift.  With any luck, I'll be able to get it in the mail today.

I wanted to find something that my mother in law could wear around the house, any time of year, to keep away the chill.  I opted for Darla Sims "Breezy Duster" ( http://www.free-crochet.com/detail.html?code=FC01211&cat_id=334 )  As usual, I ended up changing it around a bit - it's no longer a duster but more of a sweater.   I opted for 25" length from the bottom to the arm hole, then made the sleeves in one piece each instead of two.  I changed the pattern on the sleeves to allow for the increases.            
It's made from Paton's Lace, which I totally enjoyed working with.
