It is hard for even me to believe that this top has been worn so much in the past month that it needed a good washing. Well, truth be told, it wasn't worn so much as it was "glowed" upon. August was a hot month and the last thing I need is my fine knittery languishing about in
Here is proof that I can wear horizontal stripes! This particular pattern (#15 available on Ravelry) has adjusted my attitude greatly.
After much contemplation and studying of these photos and the actual top, it is possible I have figured out why I love these stripes when I eschew all others.
#2 The texture change between garter & stockinette is fun to admire.
#3 The color flow of dark through light play tricks with what the eye beholds.

I am so in love with this style on my body that my mind has been straying to color choices for another version.
Straying a lot.
