A summer tee for my honey...

This June, Scarlett graduated from Nursery school, where does the time go? I feel like I blinked, and all of a sudden my baby girl has collected her "diploma" and is off to kindergarten (a big sigh). Going to work in your mama's yarn shop every day means, hmmm, what can my mom knit for me now? Well, she certainly needed something new and fabulous for all of her hard-earned achievements. After browsing through few patterns together on ravelry, we settled on this yoke top, by I figured this would be fantastic out of Blue Sky skinny cotton, with skinny stripes of course. I couldn't be happier with the fit, and Scarlett loves her new top!! Check it out...

This pattern was super easy and I loved that unlike most top down sweaters, there were only 2 rows on increases done in the ribbing around the neck, very cool. The skinny cotton is so nice to knit on a size 6 needle, it almost feels stretchy, and it's cool enough to knit with in this beautiful sunshine that has finally found it's way!! Hope you're enjoying your summer so far!!!
