FO: Summer Top
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.
