So, as soon as I finished her unmentionables, I decided I needed a top for Bug as well. I had been itching to knit Ummeyusuf’s design called Raspberry Lemonade for quite some time, but I just hadn’t had the inspiration. Well, with the lacy look of the pants and an appropriate contrast color, I decided it would be a lovely pairing.
The yarn is caron natural spa, mostly acrylic with some bamboo. Very very splitty but quite soft. I grabbed Bug for a photoshoot this afternoon, even though the weather is too hot and muggy to be wearing anything knit.
I have to admit, the ruffled top had me fooled, I really had convinced myself there was no way it was going to work. But….as you can see it ended up looking quite nice!
