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 clothes...so 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.
