I haven't mentioned this project at all to you, so here is my surprise reveal! I started this top on the 15th, and finished it up yesterday afternoon. It only took four days to knit this - the rest of the time was spent waiting for more of this gray yarn to arrive in the mail..! I ended up running out of it when it was about 3/4 done. I swear, the mail always takes a billion years longer to get to you when you're waiting for something important! And you must forgive my floral bikini that's peeking out from behind the lattice-work top; I took these pictures after I got home from lifeguarding.
This is definitely a project I'm going to do again in the future, only smaller! I took in about three inches from the body of this shirt because it was so loose. And it was smaller than the 'small' on the pattern to boot! But I still love this shirt to death - the eyelets along the ribbing, the boatneck neckline... it's so adorable. I also added in a tiny band of cream yarn between the two main colors, which wasn't part of the pattern, and I love how perfect that turned out too!
Anyhow, this is a Knitting for Confidence post because one of my New Year's resolutions was to knit five things I've never made before, so here's #3! My others so far are colorwork gloves and a shawl. & the name of this post is borrowed from the colorway of this blue yarn. It's so lovely! Have you tried any adventurous projects lately? xx
