For my birthday present to myself back in October, I bought 4 skeins of Silk Garden (color 228 I think, although I don't have a label with me).  I was able to make the Teva Durham ballet top with them.  I actually had a bit left over.  I wish I had planned the color on the sleeves better so that they would be a bit longer. 

Trying to be a model, while not fully understanding the principles of using a flash while standing right next to a wall:


So you can see both sleeves (they don't match, and I'm not sure if I like that or don't).


If you look, you can still see the ladders from my DPNs.

I modified the pattern for gauge and for sleeves.  I had the pattern out of the Loop-d-Loop book, with cap sleeves.  I used Option #1 from Grumperina's guide to adding long sleeves, and it worked really well.

If I were to do this pattern with Noro again, I'd modify the way I did the body so that the width of those stripes matched the width of the stripes on the sleeves.

i think it looks awesome.  you can't engineer silk garden too much - better to let the stripes go as they are.  this is the first ballet tee i've seen in a non-solid color - it looks fabulous!  what # of silk garden is it?

I really like it! I wouldn't worry about the sleeves, like them non-matchy

Great job!

It is superb!  I love silk garden.  I even washed it and it gets much softer.
