I did knit a peach version of this back in the 80s - but sadly I can't find any photos of it. (Also sadly it was two sizes smaller!)
I love this top and will be wearing it all summer (if it ever stops raining). The yarn is a thick cotton and was lovely to knit with, so much so that I am planning to make something in the faded red version of the yarn. I think Summer Breeze will look great with white linen trousers or jeans and I am planning to make a denim blue necklace to go with it now:)
Here is the pattern and yarn all laid out ready to start.
I used 11 balls in total.
I have had an idea for a crocheted necklace for some time - so I thought I'd start putting it into action. In WIP Report 9 I said I would probably recycle a silver and purple pearl necklace into something else - and so initially it was my intention to use the silver pearls for Pearl Drops.
Anyway the idea is to create a row of loops with pearls sewn inside each one. I shall write up the pattern when I have finished - but as you can see it's not a difficult affair so far!
I have at last managed to turn the heel of sock one!
