Lambic Top - FO
haha, OK, so that's not really the name of this top, but it's the only one I could come up with for now.



pattern: my own. I got inspiration from my ill-fated Tulip, and then ran with it.

yarn: Ironstone Warehouse Butterfly in color 660 (never heard of it? Me neither - I bought it on a whim while in CA this summer.)

It was knit in the round on US6 denises, split at the armholes, then I grafted the shoulders together. I picked up the stitches to add the collar and arm ribbing.

Here's pics of the top with icky flash. It was late, and I was ready to sit and enjoy my drinky-drink.
