February 2013

This yarn was my husband’s second anniversary present to me - it being traditional to give cotton and this shade of red being our wedding theme colour. We ALMOST agreed to stop buying gifts after being a bit stumped by leather on out third anniversary, but I understand that seventh is wool, so we just might stick it out for a bit longer…

I worked this in the round up to the armholes and then did the front and back separately, joining the shoulders with a three needle bind-off. It was an easy modification, and cut down the seaming a bit.

I’ve worn this a lot - it’s a great summer top. The cotton is piling a bit under the arms now, which surprised me, but it’s standing up to the wear and tear reasonably well overall.
