This is why I love knits

I made this Classic Shell from Vogue Quick Knits in February 2004.  It was made with 2 strands of Filatura Di Crosa Ramie held together.  One is blue and the other is lilac.

The photo was taken last night and the top looks as good as new.  It is worn often and always handwashed.

How else can you get a top for $6 (6 balls x $1) that will last 5 years?  Sure its a bit tighter than 5 years ago but at least its stretchy and still looks good under a jacket.
