Yarn Along - Finished Cap Sleeved Top

Loved knitting up this little top and it knit up really fast.  A few changes and a few regrets: If I knit one up again (and I think I will) I will actually follow the needle change recommendations.  I knit the whole thing on 8s because I was paranoid it would come out too tight.  But it is too big on top (yoke, sleeves, arm holes) and now I see why she says to start on 6s and switch to 8s.  Live and learn.  Also I added 4 or 5 rows of ribbing at the bottom to keep it from rolling up....this I would do again.  But Anna actually seems to like it and she has become very picky about her that is good news!

Next I play on starting the wingspan scarf.  I bought my yarn and needles last night.  Very excited to make another knit for myself.

I am still reading Emily of New Moon.  Only about half way through.  I have been so tired at bedtime I barely get a page or two in before I am ready to turn out the lights.

For more yarn alongs check out Small Things.

Absolutely beautiful shirt. I am disappointed that I used to know how to knit and have totally forgotten. I'd have to start from square one with lessons.

That is super cute as is your model.
Enjoy making your wingspan.
