Silk Top With Flowers

At home I have a closet full of projects from 2008 which are not finished. My plan for 2009 was to finish one of these projects every month. The project for January was not finished within the 31 days. I had a slow start as you can see. February is nearly over and I have not been any faster this month. I still need to finish half of the front on this top and the yoke.




The Silk Top With Flowers is a summer top in a deep blue colour. The yarn is called Soft Silk and the colourway is ss19. Needles 4/3,5mm. I’m so looking forward until this one gets done, hopefully this would be a beautiful garnment. To knit this top in size M you only need 200g. or two hanks of Soft Silk.


 Wish me luck! I have seven and on half hours to get the top done. This time I have to make it within time.

It’s really easy to knit with and the yarn is so soft. Brown is a good colour for my grandfather so the choice of colour was not so difficult. I also like the tweed effect in clothes for men.


Great men needs big sizes. 😉 With seven hanks of Lucca Tweed I’m knitting size XL. Using needles size 7/4,5mm. If he is visiting us and I’m knitting, he always comment on the speed of my needles. Today he asked me if I thought the sweater would be finished until Monday. I had to laugh. I do consider myself as a medium fast knitter, but even if I was a very fast knitter I do not think that that sweater would have been ready until Monday. I take it as a big compliment that he asked..
