Yet Another 0 Has Been F'd

I'm pleased with this one.
Evening Star Top
from Interweave Knits, Summer 2006
I knit this from a cotton/acrylic blend (shocking, I know) called Cotton Plus by TLC. Love the yarn. My favourite part of this top is the cabled waist -- it is super comfy and flattering. I didn't add the frilly hem, neck or sleeve treatment called for in the pattern -- too much for me. However, I can see why they put it on the neck, as the neck is loose as is. Not too loose, but perhaps an elastic thread ... I will have to wear it for a while to see. Also the back edge of the neck sits up, which I notice is in the photo of the model as well. The garment is loose over all, which surprised me as I did get gauge and it looked more fitted. But I really like it, and it is a totally comfortable item to wear.
Now on to Christmas gift knitting!!
