This was the very first article of clothing (top) that I completed and can wear. I knit a sweater when I first began to knit again, and that didn't work out so well. I am very pleased with this. The pattern is Lace Hem Topping from Creative Knitting, July 2008.
Materials: Shine (worsted weight) a blend of Cotton and Modal (recycled beach wood). The yarn "fluffed" a lot leaving lint everywhere when I was knitting. However, the yarn is lovely and soft and makes a wonderful fabric.
I made a mistake while knitting the front and had to rip the rows back. With some help from the users at Ravelry, I was able to correct the mistake without having to frog the whole piece!
