Empire Top
This is the reason why I have to ask my mother in law posed the Empire Top for me. As you can see in the photo, although originally I designed this top when I was not pregnant, however, in the end I am able to wear it. I think it’s because I knit this top using cotton yarn, and we are all know that cotton can stretch. The good thing about cotton is, once you wash, it shrinks back to the original size.

************************************************** ******************************

Finally I am able to post this FO. This is Empire Top that I sketched last year. My mother in law modeled it for me. She is 60 plus, but the top still looks OK on her.
Details about this project, can be found here

Thanks for looking
