Colinette Top

A finished object!

This was supposed to be summer knitting. ha. This is the Colinette Cap Sleeve Top from the Colinette Trio booklet in Fandago Gauguin.

As you can see, this Colinette yarn is a fuzzy cotton chenile. I loved the yarn in the skein, but I'm not as keen on it in an outfit. I alternated the yarn every two rows, but you can still see the different skeins and some pooling. It isn't quite as fitted around the waist as I had hoped, even though I made the 36" bust size--which should be a little bit snug. My gauge seems right, so I can only guess that this is to fit loosely--a fact disguised by the model's position in the picture. Of course, I can't believe that I thought that this top would count for summer knitting. It is so bloody hot that I won't be wearing this until it gets down to the 80s.
