This was on the cover of VK Spr/Sum '04. The neck shaping was a little tricky but I managed to finish it. I used "Celia" by Vittadini, which still looked like a hot mess after I blocked it. I was so disappointed and I was about to trash it. However, the ladies in my knitting group suggested I use a gentle steam instead of the spray bottle and it started to look better.

Great job.. indeed I looked and wondered why you were posting the original magazine picture with a model! :) Good for you and good for the ladies recommending that steam approach.

That's been on my list for some time now, and seeing yours makes me want to knit it even more. The style, fit and colour suit you beautifully.
