Update:
This is the reason why I have to ask my mother in law posed the Empire Top for me. As you can see in the photo, although originally I designed this top when I was not pregnant, however, in the end I am able to wear it. I think its because I knit this top using cotton yarn, and we are all know that cotton can stretch. The good thing about cotton is, once you wash, it shrinks back to the original size.



********************************************************************************

Finally I am able to post this FO. This is Empire Top that I sketched last year. My mother in law modeled it for me. She is 60 plus, but the top still looks OK on her.







Pattern: My Own
Materials: Karabella Vintage Cotton. Color: 302 Pink. Dye Lot # 4745. Qty: 9 x 50 gram
Needles: Addi Metal Circular Needle 3.25 mm
Total Cost: Yarn USD 39,- plus shipping USD 15.72,- Total USD 54.72,-
Start Date: 11 September 2007
Finish Date: 5 February 2008

Thanks for looking
