Garment: Cap sleeved top

At time of  completion

Fibre: Silk

Date completed: May 2009

Tension: knitted at the recommended tension

Stitch: Stocking stitch with cable and lace panel

Washing: Handwashed, rolled in towels and dried flat.

Worn: Constantly

Result:

This top is worn a lot.  It is still looking great with minimal pilling only in areas that get rubbed a bit.  The pills are easily removed when washed. The size hasn’t changed since the first wash so it has held it’s shape really well.  I just measured it and got the following:
hip – 38”
waist – 32”
bust – 36”

My ravelry entry that was written on completion and blocking says the following:

After washing and laying out to dry:

Circumference at
hip – 38”
waist – 32”
bust – 36”

You can’t fault that!  The photo below doesn’t look like an almost 4 year old top does it?  The colour difference is because the old photo is under artificial light and the new photo is in daylight.
