The bust is done.

I was nervous my Tivoli wouldn't fit. So I finished the bust and put it on scrap yarn and tried it on. And it's alright. Phew. There's a tad bit of room, so i think I could even have gone with the smallest size, and I think I might do that with the next one (yes, I want to knit another one!)
This one is fine though, I think. We'll see after the waist decreases. This pattern is so quick and simple, I'm enjoying it.

Getting there

I was debating between the Picovoli version, and the Tivoli version. I've decided to do the Tivoli version so I can have this top done by the time I go to Mexico in December! It'll be perfect for slightly cool, south of the border nights. These pictures aren't so exciting, over the weekend I got through the first set of raglan increases, and the first ball of Knitpicks Shine.

This is my first knitted top, and so my first raglan seaming. I love the way it looks, and it's fun to do! It's so mathematical and neat. I highly recommend the Knitpicks Shine, by the way. Not only is it cheap, but it's very soft and has a nice sheen the camera doesn't pick up. It feels great to knit with it. Happy Tivoli-ing!

Raging purple tivoli

I started a purple tivoli for my daughter. But as it is starting to get colder, I'm losing interest. I am still working on it, but also have a billion other projects as well. I've just gotten to the bustline, and need to get it off the needles so she can try it on.
