a pink knit

Knit from Maniototo wool in barn red.

More details on Ravelry.

I have so many hand knits, all of which have to be dried flat after washing, that by this time of year I'm hesitant to bring out another one from my box (of finished knits) to wear. But as it's Father's Day and I was taking the family out for lunch I decided to go for it.

It is perhaps not as A-line as I'd hoped, but I still like it - mostly because I love the collar.

It's funny how it's not until I see a photo of my outfits, that I see the flaws in them. Like, in this case, how the long sleeved tee Im wearing with this has such baggy sleeves.

It's a lovely top! It is interesting how photos do that - show up all the flaws. Sometimes I take a photo of something just to be able to see it from that different perspective. Can be useful! Maybe that's how selfies started. :-D

thanks, I like it! I'll never get into selfies. They are for people who aren't disappointed by how they look in photos...
