Another Nice Knit Top


Photo Link

Here's another knit top from the same FSG#1960 top pattern with the Vogue collar grafted onto it. This is a very thin mesh knit that I fell in love with for the color and the interesting shadowy leaf print. It was another Wal-Mart $1/yard find, and I made it up almost immediately. I never even thought about the fact that it would match my fleece Haiku Two jacket, which was a "muslin" but I wear it a lot as a casual jacket in winter since it's so nice and warm, and I don't have to worry about anything happening to it.

It may seem silly, but I had a revelation lately about the fact that I'm always cold when I go anywhere. I need to wear more clothes. Not that I don't wear winter clothes in winter, but we keep it warmer in our house than a lot of people do, plus we have a couple humidifiers going all the time, which also makes it more comfortable. Anyway, I've started wearing 2 wool sweaters, or several layers besides just an undershirt and top, for example. My sister took the nicest photo of me the other day when I was wearing 2 sweaters I'd knitted, and I'll put it here. I love the way the colors work together, and of course since I made them both, I like them!

I love that WalMart fabric - you're right the colour and the print are just beautiful. It looks lovely with the Haiku Two jacket.

P.S. That picture your sister took of you really is nice - you look so happy!

Liana,

You are speed demon when it comes to knitting...and sewing! We keep our house really cool, so I am forever layering in the winter, too. I found the greatest accessory the other day on knitty.com—a knitted, buttoned "collar", I think called Tudor. Lovely idea.

Your photo is beautiful!

Stay warm,
Nancy JC

What a great photo! Though I'm not a knitter, I love, love the yard on that shell. The combinations of colors is fab, I could wear that!
