I've run across this a few times and find it very annoying especially if it's not in a convenient place so I can hide the knot. I can't stand finishing off and restarting in the middle of a project because of a knot.
A few days ago I was working with Clea thread and came across a knot but, thankfully, it was so small I was able to work with it and it doesn't even show.
If I had a ball with 3 knots, I'd write the company and complain because that's 2 to many knots for my liking.
Your tops are beautiful! I've never been brave enough to make and wear something like this but I love the look of them.
This may be a stupid question but, I don't get the concept behind the top and bottom pictures - there are no 'tops' to these tops. I assume they are designed to be worn over something - am I right? I've just never seen something like this
