Just in time for the Olympics

Yay! I finished it last night... with plenty of time to spare for the start of the Olympics! I used Knitpicks Shine in cream, a great color that will go with everything. Ironing it out helped a lot with the rolling everywhere but in the front of the neck. I think I might try ironing it out a bit more, but it is done. Its really a great pattern, and it fits perfectly. The only mistakes you can see are where I joined yarns, but I managed to make them not-too-noticeable. I have to admit that I wasn't a big fan of this pattern before cuz I thought it was too plain, but now I really like it. This is a top that I will be wearing a lot! Thanks Grumperina ;)

Wow, Melissa, it looks great and I'm so happy that you think you'll be wearing this top all the time! Would you like it to appear in the gallery?

Looks great - I had the same thing with neck and back but many have said this draped effect looks elegant so I'm with that!
