Bit of Knitting for Me This Time...

I have just finished knitting myself this summer top from a pattern in this month's Simply Knitting Magazine. It's knitted in Sirdar Just Bamboo in the shade Blue Grass. It was very easy to knit - the skirt looks complicated but is just a thick rib which then has the centre stitch of each little panel slipped off the needles and allowed to run to make a ladder.

I've road-tested it at work today - didn't get snagged on anything, didn't go baggy, it's nice and cool despite being quite heavy, and the skirt does a lovely swishy thing while you walk. I'm considering making another one in a different yarn maybe...

Oh that's goreous Caroline. What a beautiful blue. I love bamboo - it has such a lovely sheen to it.
