I've been a bit lazy about knitting recently and have only run up a few scarves over the last year or so.  I decided to stop being lazy and try something a little more challenging (but not too difficult - I needed to find my knitting mojo first!).  So here's my top for Spring, I can't wait for the weather to cheer up a little bit so I can wear it.  The pattern is called Joan from Let's Knit magazine 63 Feb 2013.

I've just realised how wonky my boobs look in that first photo! Huh  They don't usually look like that!  At least I don't think they do lol...  Undecided

Thanks for looking, any comments welcome  Smiley

Beautiful work,  the style is very flattering and I love the stitch pattern.

Nicely done!  Great fit, pattern and yarn color selection!  Did you use a cotton yarn for this?

This is lovely.  Great colour and I really like the stitch pattern and the neckline.  I hope you soon get some nice weather to wear it in, although I'm sure it'd look great over a long sleeved top if it stays chilly.

Very pretty! Nice stitch pattern and colour.  You look fantastic in it - I hope the weather warms up soon so you can wear it more!

Such beautiful work, it looks particularly nice on you as well. If I could knit I would have to make one of these for myself!
