Katrina Tee done!


Here she is. Four balls of Paton's Katrina, with only yards to spare. It fits EXACTLY. The original plan was to crochet around the neckline, and make the sleeves slightly longer. I tried it on yesterday, looked in the mirror and said "Oh HELLLLL no. There's no need to frighten folks with that neckline." So I "made it work" and added neck and sleeve ribbing.

I got the design ideas for this top from my friend MacChick. I like it because I can wear it almost anywhere, and there's still a lot of warm weather left. It almost matches the sky. Due to popular demand, I've added the bathroom shot. Nice, huh? ;-)

Bets, Katrina is absolutely gorgeous. i like the ribbing, it makes it look more finished and hopefully won't roll the way those crocheted edgings sometimes do. I can't wait to see it on you. You will look "fabulous". Daryl

Bets, that looks really good. I like the ribbing. Pretty bets color and it's something you'll wear and wish Katrina wasn't discontinued. Good job.

Bets, it looks wonderful - that blue is really gorgeous and I think the ribbing just adds to the design. At least you're brave enough for the bathroom shot - I still try to remain "invisible"!

That top is lovely! I like the sleeves and the neckline. Boy oh boy, you Katrina knitters are so prolific! That stuff must just glide off of your needles.
