Cap-Sleeved Eyelet Top

It's done! This seemed to go on forever because of all the busy-ness in the past month. It turned out really well, and fits great.

This is the Cap-Sleeved Eyelet Top from the book Closely Knit by Hannah Fettig. I totally would have skimmed right past this pattern based on the picture in the book, but this FO on Ravelry caught my eye, and luckily my mom had the book.

I used exactly four skeins of Blue Sky Hand-Dyed Cotton (there was about two feet left when it was all done) that I bought for 30% off at the Knitter's Studio on 3rd Street. I thought the color was a little more blue in the store lighting, but it turns out it's a periwinkle color that exactly matches my last FO. I guess I like that color!

The cotton is a little fuzzy and a little thick, but it should be a nice top for fall.
