Keeping the dress-code

In my new job the rules for dressing are much more stricter than anywhere else I worked before...
Spaghetti straps and showing tattoos are a big no-no...
This itself would be enough to spark a bolero knitting craze, but add the fact that I have a bunch of yarns I found in second hand shops that are really not enough for anything more serious, but way too god to be left there... This was made from less than 2.5 skeins of Patons 100 wool, sock/sport weight.
It is a very simple rectangle starting and ending with about an inch of ribbing. Then sewed toogether for the arms, stitches picked up and an inch of ribbing knittend around the "sleeves" for a finished look.
The lace pattern looks more complicated than it actually is. Found it one of the german knitting magazines.
Fotos, of course by Christopher Laurent Deli :-)
