Caribbean Blue - Finished

I finished this top up a week ago, but by the time it was dry from blocking the rain had moved in and it didn't stop raining until today.  I've even worn it to work already.  It was tricky getting a decent photo of it.  There is an interesting optical illusion going on with this yarn, in the top of the bodice, where I was working back and forth, the different colors are distinct from each other, but in the body where I was working in the round, they blend and seem out of focus, like a Monet painting.

Pattern:   Cables & saddles by Julie Gaddy, Knitter's Magazine K112
Yarn:  Claudia Hand Painted Yarns Short Sport in Caribbean Blue
Needle:  US 5 (3.75 mm)


  1. Is the striping in the bodice real or an artifact of the photo? I don't remember seeing it when you wore this the other day but you also had a jacket on much of the time. Definitely one of my favorites of yours. I just noticed the cabled rib at the bottom. Nice.

    1. Yep, the striping is real. Thanks :-). I like it too. The construction was fun.
