loving lilac lace

I should have had my photographer snap FOs of me giving myself a pedicure:

Drops Design 74-2
Yarn: Cascade Pima Melange (discontinued), 4 skeins
Needles: US 6, 7, and 3

Omitted the lace pattern #1 on the back.
Substituted two yarn overs with garter on either side for the straps (the pattern called for garter stitch only).

Front detail:

Back detail:

Entire front detail:

Seeing as how it was 98 degrees today, I'm now officially ready for summer.

And Qatar, take two:

Please don't hate me, SophiaRowan, the flag is slightly larger than the specs.
Anyone know how to shrink acrylic?
