Gorgeous top! I love this pattern, and it looks wonderful on you -- a perfect fit. Great color, too. Thanks for the info on the Cotlin and the pattern details.

Lovely! That is a Zephyr Style pattern , isn't it? I made their Juliet sweater this spring and just loved it. I'm trying to get my lys to start stocking their patterns.

Your Rusted Root is beautiful! I really like the color. I may have to give that pattern a try sometime. I finished a Juliet a few months ago. It turned out lovely! I didn't have any difficulty with the pattern, but I definitely suggest using a lifeline when you get to the lace part.

I've actually finished knitting my Juliet but I found it too long and the lace skirt portion too flarey so I'm thinking of reknitting it. I didn't use a lifeline though but I probably should. :mrgreen:
