Sorry guys, with only 7 weeks left until dissertation submission, life is getting pretty hectic here, meaning I have less and less power left for knitting and blogging. Besides it is summer and I want to get away during weekends, travelling around lovely Cambridgeshire County and visiting new places. Here is the top I finished more than a week ago…
Model: Top 140 from Burda 06/07 (I call it Summer Breeze) Yarn: 5 balls of Luxury Yarns Hawaii in colour 958 Needles and hooks: 3.5mm and 2.5mm Modifications: I made the back piece 1cm longer and crocheted the edges so that the straps would not roll and fall down the shoulders
I have been experiencing some chest pain through this week, so I am on a caffeine-free diet right now. Kind of tough, like I‘ve lost the grip of what I am doing, as my daily pace had to slow down. I am staying away form books and articles this weekend, devoting much of my time to knitting. Summer Breeze top is now 2/3 done, but there is no summer to wear it. I also went to John Lewis yesterday to find out it was a huge sale day. Look what I’ve bought: 4 skews of Debbie Bliss Pure silk at the price 3 times cheaper! I would have liked to buy more but it was all they had left in this particular shade of silver grey. Have to find a pattern for it.
I also bought 1 ball of Rowan 4-ply Cotton for the bag I fell in love with this weekend. Go and check it out if you haven’t already done so at Purl Bee.
Oops, just realised, I never blogged about the top. Well I it is from German Burda 06/07, model 140. This is the picture from the mag and the one with the beginning of the back (I am now at the same place with the front)
