Well, it grew into this.
I was pretty happy with how the top was progressing but when Miranda tried it on, it fit snugly, which is to say that it hugged her slim body like a glove. Being the sweetheart that she is, she said that she was fine with having a close-fitting sweater but let's be real: the girl is going to grow and I don't think a snug top is the most comfortable thing to wear. So, like any self-respecting knitter would do, I frogged the design and have decided to revise this original pattern ... another time!
This yarn is too yummy to let sit in my stash so I did a a little searching and found a pattern that matches the concept of the sweater Miranda had in mind. I cast on the Diagonal Mesh sweater over the weekend and I'm enjoying this simple knit. I think this should go fairly quickly so fingers crossed!
