WIP- Cable collar top
I do believe this is the most boring looking WIP ever. It's the Cable Collar Top by Norah Gaughan from the Vogue Knitting spring/summer 2011 issue. The most interesting feature of this top is the collar, but I haven't gotten there yet, so all you see now is what looks like 2 very large swatches. I actually find it relaxing to knit a lot of stockinette, especially when it is not in the round so that I can alternate between knit and purl rows.
My yarn is Valley Yarns Southwick, which is a blend of pima cotton and bamboo. It has a really nice drape, and is only slighty splitty. I'm enjoying knitting with it. The top is knitting up pretty quickly.
