I am so excited to share my first Jump for Fall FO: The Westwood Blouse. I'm double dipping as this new FO also allows me to check off a goal on my Year of Project list.
Both Xavier and Miranda helped me out with this photo shoot while I was at work the other day. Xavier has a keen eye and he wanted to have some fun with Miranda while showing off my new fall top. I think they both did a great job!
I'm really happy with how this top came out: the color is a great addition to my fall wardrobe, the yarn is soft and yet not too drapey, and the style is simple with a touch of jazz. As I mentioned in a previous post, I struggled with the original stitch pattern of p3tog in the top panel of the blouse and improvised with some slip stitches instead. I still managed to maintain the lattice affect so I'm calling this FO a success!
I originally bought this Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL sport weight for the Ravi Cardigan but lost motivation to cast on that pattern. It couldn't have been more perfect for this sweater and now I have a whole other skein (661 yards!) left in my stash, just enough for another sleeveless top or short-sleeve tee, don't you think?
