Notes

Top for me :-)
I love how this yarn feels and have knitted with it before. It is a wonderful yarn for the summer. The only problem with it is that it biases a lot and st. st is not an option as well as any stitch pattern with a moderate amount of st. st. So I opted for a very lacy pattern to avoid the bias.

Picking up where I left off. Back was done already.

Done.
I love how the top turned out. Makes for a great spring/summer layering piece. If I were to re-knit, I would make the neck opening a little wider. The sleeves edges were finished with a little 2 sts i-cord. I was considering if I should pick up some sts around the sleeves and finish them with the same type of band as the body finished with, but decided that I like them as they are.
I love this lace stitch a lot. Planing to use it again. After blocking, there is no bias to this yarn knitted in this lace pattern.
