That is just beautiful! I just might have to buy this pattern now, seeing it knit up in a larger size than a small one.
I've found that Big Girl Knits and What Not To Wear (the BBC version) are the books that have helped me look at a knitting design and been able to determine if it'll be good for my body type. Of course, it also requires me to be brutally honest with what my body flaws are so I know how to hide them. (My assets I know all about
It looks gorgeous on you. You make me want to try my hand on bamboo yarn. Thanks!
Thanks Lily! The bamboo is really nice to work with, and it knits up a lot nicer than it feels in the skein.
I really want to knit that top. I just don't have time with all my other WIP. AHHH some day.
It was a surprisingly quick knit. Granted, it was also during the interim session so I didn't have a whole lot to do until my students were put into my classes and those started.
I love this top. It looks so good on you. I like the shorter sleeves. I bought the pattern and am working on it. I need to do the shorter sleeves, just because I dont have enough yarn and my LYS doesnt have any more in the same dyelot. So I'm really glad you posted it that way because now I know it looks just as good.
Just be careful where they hit. If they end at the top part of the elbow, they have a tendency to make your arms look a lot shorter. (I found this out the hard way on a different top that has since been frogged.)
To everyone else, thank you for the wonderful compliments and feedback!
