Sorry. I'm having problems smiling this morning apparently! The Cap Sleeve Top is done and I'm on my way to work :) Its about an inch wider and longer than I wanted it to be, but it grew (silk is heavy and it drapes like mad). Its very luxurious and beauitful nevertheless and it will get plenty of good wear on nice occassions.
See, no smile.
Still, no smile.
Okay, Kali cheered me up!
Cap Sleeve Top from the Debbie Bliss Pure Silk BookYarn:
Debbie Bliss Pure Silk in color #011Measurements:
Actual measurement is around 37.5 - 38" around. Its hard to tell with this hard since it drapes so much. About an inch of extra give in this one, but it works.Started:

Love the patterns out of this book as well as the yarn. Beware though, some of the sizings in this book are wrong. For this top, I should have made the third size. But, after looking at the schematic and redooing the math, it was apparent that DB editors don't double check their math. So, be careful! Also, I would recommending making everything to fit your actual chest size rather than giving the normal 1 -2" give. My chest size is 37" and I should have knit this for a 36-37" rather than a 37-38". The only thing I changed was the back. I did a st st back rather than the lace panel. This made it a bit bigger (since there were no cables and lace), but my front was about an inch smaller and so it evened itself out in the end size wise.
In other news, one if my closest friends father's passed away a couple of days ago. Scott and I can't attend the funeral, but we are sending lots of warm thoughts out to Traci and her family. We love you!
