~summer tank top~


I’ve finally finished this top – it has been waiting patiently for the ends to be sewn in for a while now – maybe it just took some warmer weather to motivate me to do so!

This is my first foray into neutrals as I find they don’t particularly suit me, but I do like this putty colour and it happens to go great with denim. The 80% bamboo/20% wool yarn feels gorgeous to wear, and overall I am really happy with the fit – especially the neckline shaping.

I quite liked the Verena stylist’s idea of a scarf, so out came my vintage Liberty silk scarf especially for the photo!

Pattern: #37 Chocolate, from Verena Knitting Summer 2009
Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo, colour 132 Putty, 7 balls
