FO: Lacy Little Top

So, how cute is this?

I LOVE this top & am so grateful that Robin got sick of knitting it! I was thinking about knitting this one for a long time, and am so glad I did. Plus, I didn't have to do the lace part, so bonus!
The details:
Pattern: Lacy Little Top
Yarn: Elann Canapone
Needles: KP Harmony 4's
Size: 32
Mods: I despise I-cord, so I did my crochet chain method for the tie. (chain the length of the desired cord + 10%. Then slip stitch into the 'butt' of each chain)
Thoughts: I was sooooo nervous the hemp wouldn't block out at first, but it was all for naught. I pulled and tugged and pinned it into submission & It fits great!

It looks really great on you, Jenny!! Fabulous! I'm so glad you wanted to finish it, as it just would have languished in my closet forever. Black is a good color on you as well.

It looks great! I started/stopped that pattern so often, I gave it a time out. I like the pattern, but the hemp is a pain.
