Spring Garden Tee

Alana from Never Not Knitting has created a grown-up version of her popular kid-sized pattern of the same name- The Spring Garden Tee. If you see it in your knitting-related travels, you might notice that the model seems a bit familiar....
Those photos represent the first time I have put my hair in curlers since my wedding day, so it was kind of a big deal.
I can certainly attest that the top is super comfortable, and a dream to wear. The sample I'm wearing is knitted in Be Sweet bamboo, and even though it was a scorching 31 Celsius (88 Fahrenheit) that day, so it holds up well under extreme heat! I was completely comfortable. The best part was deciding what to wear it with- the top has such a fabulous classic cut and drape that it honestly looked good with everything I tried on - it even looked really good belted. I'm definitely going to be knitting my own, since it was so clear to me how easily it could become a wardrobe staple. Here's the Ravelry link, if you would like to add it to your queue.

A big thank you to Alana for involving me in her wonderful design!! And if you are not familiar with Never Not Knitting, you need to go check out her blog right away- it's amazing, and she has regular podcasts about all things knitting.
