Finished Item of the Week

I've had half of this top in my 'to finish' pile for about a year now and I'm pleased to announce that this Saturday morning I completed it! It was pretty easy so I'm not sure what took me so long, I think it's just that I get bored when I have to do another piece exactly the same as the first.

Anyway, it fits and it's sunny so I'm wearing it!

It is longer when I'm stood up, I think it gathered and rode up a bit when I laid down. I used about 150g of yarn (if memory serves me correctly) and I just used some cheap acrylic, possibly mix that I got from the wool shop of addiction. Speaking of which I went in last week and got 5 balls, 4 black acrylic mix to make the Other Half a poncho once mine's done and one variegated yarn that took my fancy. I hope I've not renewed my insane addiction!

Oh that turned out so cute, I love the color. I am glad you finished it so we could all see it. Ha Ha on the buying more yarn. I think that's one of the hardest addictions to break.

Ayliz - welcome! I'm afraid I don't speak Turkish and the Google translator is no good, but thanks for stopping by!

Barbara - thanks, I'm really pleased with it, I'm contemplating making something similar as it only used a little bit of yarn - a perfect project for getting rid of those impulse bought yarns!!! :-)
