Turkey Tracks: Knit Top

Turkey Tracks:  December 21, 2017

Knit Top

I finished this knit top Tuesday:  the Lark Tee by Grainline Studio.

The bias neckband I cut came out really well.  I am not going to sew a line of stitching on the outside as I think it would be messy looking on this knit.  The band stays flat just fine.

It’s the first knit thing I’ve ever made, and I’m really happy with it as it fits perfectly and looks really nice on.

This knit is thinner and very kind of slippery, so a great learning top.

I will make this top again in other knits–but later in the year as it is too light for winter in Maine.  And it is too fitted to layer over a cotton turtleneck.

I don’t do well with layering wool over a top like this one as the wool makes me itch.  That’s why I wear turtleneck tops a lot in the winter.

I’m very pleased…

  2. Nice! Knits intimidate me. They’re up next (leggings) after I finish Ashley’s jacket!
