Yes, there is a reason behind my recent spate of sock infidelity. A friend lent me Lucinda Guy's book And so to bed. This little top said "knit me, I'm small and involve lots of mildly interesting patterning", and being a fickle wench, I replied "sure thing!".
As summer is approaching, I whipped this little number up out of Lincraft's Bamboozle, a 70% bamboo 30% cotton blend. The yarn tends to separate into strands very easily, so I'm not sure how this top will hold up to a frolicsome two year old.
Still its turned out real pretty.
