Fastest thing I ever knit

.... fastest, that is, if you don't count anything I may have made for my nieces' Barbie dolls. I started this project on April 22nd and finished weaving in the loose ends this morning. I love the drape of this yarn (Classic Elite Firefly) and the subtle shaping at the sides of this Vogue Knitting pattern.

Front -


The lower part was knitted in the round.

Back -

The upper part was knitted side-to-side from one shoulder to the other.
closer -


I like the subtle design made with reverse stockinette and garter stitches on the contrast yoke. I was not so sure about the lace at the lower edge, but made it anyway.

You should get Judy to show you all her knitting projects too. This top is so lovely - and you are very clever at knitting as well as sewing/quilting/ and gardening - and computers! Can you cook too!!!!???????????
