Cap Sleeve Top



Knitting is pretty slow nowadays. its either I can't find time knitting or I'm too lazy to knit.

Anyhow, I only manage to finish a Cap Sleeve Top recently. This is one of the design from the Debbie Bliss Pure Silk Collection gifted to me by my Secret Pal. At first I was quite worried that I can't follow the instructions as I normally only knit from Japanese magazine. I was lucky. The instructions is clear and easy too follow.

I did not use the recommended yarn suggested. Instead I've use a yarn with a similar gauge the Jaeger Sienna. It is in the shade of sky blue. This was knitted with needle size 3.6mm. I've use up a total of 5 balls of Jaeger Sienna.

It is a new experience for me as I was introduced to cap sleeve in this design. I do love the sleeve a lot.

Now that I'm done with this one I'm off to search for another new pattern to knit.

Have a nice weekend and Happy Knitting.

good to see that you enjoyed the pattern book - Debbie does write good patterns, I've been looing at her new books tonight and there are some lovely ideas.

I was hoping that your last package would have arrived by now but at least it is on it's way!

Your secret pal
