I finished a summer top before the first day of summer!  This is an accomplishment for me, as I seem to usually start and set aside many many summer tops and never actually finish them.  Sigh.  Startitis, I guess.

Pattern: Aleita Shell by Bonne Marie Burns in Interweave Knits Spring 2008
Yarn: recycled from a thrift store sweater. I have long since lost the tags, but I remember linen and cotton in the fiber makeup.
Mods: I made the body longer before the split but other than that I followed the pattern (I think). Now that I've worn it, I think I should have knit another 1" - 1 1/2" on the ribbed top portion before splitting for front and back, but it's not something that will keep me from wearing the top.  I'll definitely be making another one or more...

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.
