Cast Off: Forest Fairy

Last year I got a newsletter from a yarn store that featured a gorgeous top. The moment I saw it I knew I had to make one. So I ordered the yarn and pattern and when that flu struck last month, I churned the top out in record time.


This was a fun project to make and I'm quite proud of the result. But I actually would not have had many things to pair it with if it weren't for my lovely mom that treated me to a beautiful vintage shirt a while back. It's a perfect match!


The sequins are a bit scratchy, I could have used slightly smaller needles and I kind of wished I hadn't cast off the stitches in the armpit like the pattern instructed, but despite all those things I am still very smitten with this project!

I know this isn't my first leafy project and it most likely won't be my last. Apparently I just love knitted leaves...
