*gasp!* I totally love this!!!  I was thinking about weaving random strands of yarn into a finished project the other day! But this is just marvey! Lovely modeling as well  Cheesy

Really, really cute!  Did you make eyelets to thread the yarn through?  I guess gauge is an especially important issue on a garment like this.  Wouldn't want it sliding down...

Thanks guys (I'm blushing as I write this  Cheesy)
Booglass I forgot to mention, I used Rowan Polar (not the yarn recommended but has the same gauge and came in the colour I liked) and for the embroidery I used Patons Up Country and Manos Del Uruguay together. You could really use whatever you like for this, especially if you're planning on wearing it over a shirt (like the model for the pattern) so it wouldn't need to be super-soft. I just got suckered into buying the fancy stuff. I'm easily suckered.
Lisa, I didn't do any "eyeleting", just wove it through with a needle.
Thanks again!
 o and Flapperjack I love your tube top; I wish I could "whip things up" like you do  Smiley

Tere

I like your picture better than Rowan's. 

The comments about your garment not looking homemade crack me up!  There's a book (about quilting, actually) called "That Dorky Homemade Look" and this comment made me think of that.  The book is about giving yourself permission to give up on the strangling need to be a craft perfectionist.

But that said, Tere's work is really beautiful!!!!

Lovely!  (both you and the top) - I don't even think I noticed this top in that particular book - yours looks sooooo much better than the photo.  Great job!  Smiley

When I first saw this pattern in the Rowan book, I wasn't that taken with it.  But your version has changed my mind!  Excellent Job!

I find that true with a lot of published patterns... At first glance, the majority of some of these patterns in books aren't that inspiring... but when I see all of yours and admire everyone's personal touches and twists to them, I'm in awe and just want to pick up my needles n' yarn and get busy all over again!  Cheesy You guys rock!

Aw, I totally want that book now...the pics they showed were inspiring, without being too overwhelming.  I usually find myself rather discouraged by the patterns I see in many books--I never see any that I like AND look like I could actually make them without causing a major Stich and Botch.  But those look doable...now, if I could only afford to by a ton of Rowan yarn, I'd be doing great!
