There is discrepancy between the sketch and the final result. Originally I want to make the lace on the bottom section only, however, in the end I think I like it vertical. I also eliminated the lace on the sleeve.
It took me 5 months to finish this top, because somewhere in between, I lost interest in knitting. Only picked up again when Lauri started kindy. Since I had nothing to do while waiting for her, so I bring my knitting along.
Knitting the top part is interesting, however, it bored me to death knitting the bottom part. But, I have to say that the result is really worth it.
So far this top is my favorite. I wear this top too many times already. If it can talk, I am sure, it already called for help.
The yarn is nice to work with. I bought 10 balls from Sandra Singh. I used up only 9 balls and the remaining become a bag. After so many washing, it holds very well.
