Al's Bonny Top by Tin Can Knits



Here is Al's finished top!
The great news is there is no shaping. 

Here are her notes: 
This sweater was not super fun to make but I think it will be a sweater I actually wear. The pattern is Bonny by Tin Can Knits from their book Handmade in the UK (also available as individual download) and made with Juniper Moon Farms Findlay in Poppy. There was no shaping so I simply added two inches of stockinette before the armhole in order to make it long enough for my long torso. 

Thanks Al for sharing this on the blog. 
Hello Oklahoma City. 

Love the shoes and the skirt too. 
Tim Gunn taught you well. 

Your rather basic knit mother is working on another Christmas stocking...

Happy Wednesday!

Perfect! And I love Al's skirt too!!

Oh my she is so beautiful! Al takes my breath away with her beauty and talent. You are a blessed Mom. I love the cute top. I would wear that as well. I like tops that are a bit risque/transparent with a tank underneath. I wish I could be young again and wear all the darling styles of today.

So, so pretty. Perfect color choice, Al!

Your daughter is gorgeous and talented! I do hope she tells people she knit that herself when they compliment her on it. Oh how proud you must be! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Thanks to Al for sharing. I do love Tin Can Knits. Al did a beautiful job with the sweater and it looks great on her -- but a paper bag would look good on such a lovely young woman!

That's a terrific finish. Smart of her to know when to make a modification.

Nice sweater, and it looks great with the skirt. What a pretty daughter you have!

That's really a interesting design. Better yet....she got it to FIT!!! That's just genius.

Cottage Yarns has a sale in the fall and in the spring. I say every little bit helps, yeah? An old church was divided up into several small businesses, the yarn store being one of them so the space is small. Some ppl didn't like how the yarn is all in bags that they are packed in, but Katherine has no problem with you pulling out skeins to further examine a skein. I don't go here enough. The San Jose yarn store is nice but sometimes I'd like to see what brands they have; I can't access their website for fear something will infect our laptop; my husband would be so ticked if that happened, but I do like how the San Jose store has some brands I've never used or heard before. Thank you for your support and cheer!

She is gorgeous and so is the sweater! I've been hearing a lot about Tin Can Knits and their patterns on the podcasts I watch. I may have to go check it out. Oh you must be so proud of her and that wonderful talent.
Blessings,
Betsy

Beautiful sweater and it looks so good on her, the fit and the color! Tin Can Knits has some good patterns. Yes, thanks for sharing Al! I'm glad she believes she will wear it even if it wasn't the most fun to knit. She's beautiful.

Al would look beautiful in a paper sack, but that sweater, oh my!
