I’d meant to post about this before I left for my vacation last week, but I wasn’t feeling very photogenic at the time, so I put it off. And then the first two days after I got back from Rhode Island, I worked a little later than I’d planned and thus didn’t have enough natural light by the time I got home, so I put this off some more.
But today, I finally got time to take some pictures. I’m still not feeling very camera-happy (hence the lack of smiles), but whatever, I give up.
But I swear I’m happy with this project! Really! I even wore it to work on Wednesday.
Obviously, I chose to knit this as a short-sleeved top. I knit five rows of stockinette and three rows of 3×1 rib to finish the sleeves.
I knit the medium size back and the small size body. In retrospect, I probably could have knit the small back and the extra-small body. Because as you can see in the above picture, the top has definitely relaxed after 8+ hours of wear… even more than my swatches had indicated. Oh well. I still like it and will definitely get good use out of it.
