I have put my dad's wife's sweater on hold while I was waiting for a measurement (which I now have). While I was waiting, I cast on a top for myself! It is from a book borrowed from a friend, and it is called the Coquette Lace Top. It is a tube top with a little lace panel down the front, very cute, and so far it is knitting up quite fast. I have added in some shaping in the waist, and made some minor adjustments, but all in all the pattern is great as is.
In my ravelry, it is referred to as the sunflower top, because sunflowers are my favorite flower of all time, and the yellow that I am working with reminds me of a sun flower. I am also using a sunflower stitch marker set (that the queen made for me).
Anyhow, I cast on about a week and a half ago, and I have about 40% to go. Can't wait for it to be finished, and even more so, I cant wait for it to be spring time so that I can wear it!
