Happy dancing here last week, with the finish of a summer top for yours truly.
It’s knitted following this pattern
“Melody – Lace Summer Top” by Sarah Hatton. I swapped the recommended yarn for OnLine Linie 107 Supersoft. I used 6 x 50g. While the yarn I used is a cotton mix, it’s still a bit warm here to be wearing a knitted top. Should be good for September though.
And in the meantime, no sooner had I cast off, than I cast on!
I’m using a yarn cake (cotton & acryllic mix) bought in ACTION on a whim because of the pretty colours. Bought on a whim probably a couple of years ago, and been sitting in the cupboard ever since. Yarn is knitting up prettily but ever so hairy – I wouldn’t expect a young child to want to wear a top knitted with this yarn but I’m giving it a whirl just because. I’m not even going to worry about matching up the colour morphing on front & back – this project will be for Daisy doll. If I like how the pattern knits up, I’ll buy in some decent yarn to make again for Little Miss Viking. There’s also the pattern for a cardigan in the leaflet, which is ever so pretty.
