FO: Beach House

I finished my Beach House last week, exactly as planned, and I am super happy thrilled with it. I love the length, I love the fit, I love the color-really, this is one of my favorite new tops. I cheated for pictures-the finishing's not quite done here. I usually weave in all my ends before blocking, but I missed one, and decided to get it once it was dry. Then I got all set up for the photoshoot, remembered that there was still one long end by my armpit that needed to be woven in, and tucked it secretly into my brassiere.

(And now I've ruined the secret by telling all of you. Also, I've attracted god knows how many spambots because I said "brassiere." Oh well. Hello, spambots. I hope you like knitting, because that's really all I talk about.)

Anywho, I am incredibly pleased with how this top came out, and I think it's going to be a really flexible piece. This yarn is an absolute delight, but there was still a lot of dye hanging out in it-I rinsed it six times before the water went from "washing the blood on my hands" to "mild pink." I got it from a destash sale, and it's discontinued now (because of course it is), but other than the bleeding it was a total delight to work with and I'm loving wearing it!
