Summer top FO

I use the word "summer" very loosely! ;0)
It's piddling down with rain here today. :0(

I finished this a few weeks ago but haven't got around to posting the photo. And seeing as all I have to show you lately are photos from the sweater marathon, I thought this would make a nice change.

This is a Sirdar pattern which gave the choice of having cap sleeves or sleeveless, with colour or without, and also the pattern had fake pockets on the front, just above your boobs, but I left those off because I thought they may make me look huge!

I used 3.25mm and 4mm needles and RYC Cashsoft DK, which is a lovely yarn to knit with. I think I used about 7x50g balls in total. The mother of pearl heart buttons were bought from my LYS.

Lastly, I made up the necklace myself - I bought the glass heart from Hobbycraft for under £3.00 and put it on a suedette thong which I had at home.
