Since I'm trying to stashbust as much as possible before Rhinebeck, I've been looking for interesting ways of using up yarn that I've apparently had in my stash since the beginning of time... This is what I've come up with for my first summer top this year:









And a close up of the lace & the shaping:




The MC is Knit One Crochet Too Angora Soft (discontinued, which tells you for how long I`ve had it Wink), the lace is done in Berroco Seduce. It was knit from the top down & grew very organically (lots of trying on & stuff), but I did take some notes & might eventually write up a pattern... What do you guys think?

Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.

Not only do I love the entire thing as a person that likes beautiful things, I love the way you did the shaping! And it def does have that 'organic' feel- you did an amazing job!
