WIP Wednesday - Summer top

Not much longer to go now! I finished the back yesterday and had such a feeling of accomplishment when I finally bound off the first 60 stitches :)


Took a photo of the back as well, to more clearly show how much I have left to knit. If I'm as dilligent this week as I was last week, I should be able to finish it!!!

I'm so happy with the way it's turning out, and just HOPE it won't end up being too large. I know I can try it on, but I also know that if I do and it doesn't fit, I'll have lost all motivation to finish. So I'll just keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.

No photos of the storm cloud shawlette - I finished that over the weekend, so you'll get to see that on Friday :-)

  4. Well done, you have done so much! I agree with you that if you try it on and it doesn't fit then the will to finish will disappear! However if it doesn't fit you can always send it to me!! LOL

  6. A finished shawl and a nearly finished top - now that's productive. I know what you mean about not trying it on. Sometimes I think as long as I don't know something, it isn't true yet. I sure hope it fits!

    1. Thanks! Me too :)

      The shawlette took just a week to knit - it basically flew off the needles. And it's so cute! I can't wait to show it off :)

      I'm very pleasantly surprised by how quickly this top is going as well.

    1. Neither - so I was actually a bit hesitant at first, because I don't know how the colour will look on me. Here's to hoping I won't be too washed out in it ;)

    1. I know! I'm kinda worried about that, but refuse to think too much about it or I won't dare to finish ;)
