Here is my Bella Blouse from this issue of IK. It's the free pattern by Nora Gaughan. I do love how it came out. I have a modeled shot and a close-up of the lace detail on my blog. I used Lion Brand Microspun and knit it in the round instead of front and back. I think it looks much more flattering in person but....Anyway, another mod I made was in the chart it called for yo at the beginning of a purl row - that didn't seem to work for me so I did a yo at the end of a knit row and then just slipped the first stitch....it worked out beautifully. This took me about 1 month to knit.

What a pretty color! Such nice details too. Was there a link to your blog somewhere? I think I missed it.

If you go to her profile, you can access her blog from there. And it looks great!! :cheering: I really love how it looks on and I love the color.

This is very, very pretty... May I ask what yarn you used? (That is the EXACT color I am looking for for my next project.)

:heart: the color and :heart: the neckline/band! Nice Job!!

Thanks for the compliments.

that looks terriffic- and I bet it is so soft in the microspun. It has such lovely definition at the neck and hem!
