Here is the top I've been working on since April 1st. I finished today! It's Mikado Ribbon Lace Panel Camisole top (link below), and I used Classic Elite Elena cotton yarn. I'm not real happy with the way the picot edging stretched out the neck and armholes, and it still curls pretty bad (I laid it flat for the photo). But overall, I guess I did alright. I hope the pictures aren't too big! :oops:

I just LOVE it, especially the color. Whatever flaws you see are certainly not apparent to MOI!

Actually, I used a woven mercerized cotton yarn from Classic Elite. I LOVE the yarn they used (see the link), but I was looking for a pattern for the yarn I had, not the other way around.

Oh, and btw, I realize it does look kind of reddish in the pictures, but it's actually "light chocolate", which I call a "rust" color.

Thanks, everyone!!
:D
