Up on deck-a springy knit

So I've discovered that my recycled yarn and SnB Nation's Lucky is NOT a match made in heaven. So what to do with it? I was thinking of something along the lines of the infamous Boobholder but in a style that doesn't call so much attention to.... you know.

And then I found this:



It's a free pattern from Knitpicks.com. I like it. A little fancy, yet something I can easily dress down. Plus this pattern's gauge is a much better fit for my yarn (which is about a sportweight). Yeah for Spring knits!

Maybe if we all start to knit Springy-Summery items like this maybe, just maybe we can invoke the powers of Mother Nature and actually get some F-ING SPRING WEATHER!!!

Jaywalker is trucking along, and I will be finishing up my Princess Bride Craft Swap this weekend. Have a good one!

That is definitely a cute top. I think the fanciness just makes it better.

oh what a cute top! my sister would really love that.
And I sympathize with the need for spring projects.
I'm sick of socks. And I can't bear to even look at my Rogue in progress. By the time I finish it, I won't be able to wear it. So I started my first shawl (not exactly a summer project, but at least its not heavy aran sweater!)
