Ta-dah! I’ve finished my Beachcomber cotton top!
Capitalising on the satisfaction of finishing my socks, I was determined to complete another WIP before my motivation disappeared, and this seemed the most likely candidate.
As you can see, it’s a simple T shape, knitted in 2 pieces, back and front identical.
The pattern was from the early 1980s, and my original version back then had been in cream cotton.
I’m not sure that this blue incarnation will live up to rose-tinted memories of the original (designs and shapes have come a long way since then!), but for the cost of just under 6x 50g balls of DK cotton, it’s turned out quite well and will be a comfortable alternative to a t-shirt on slightly cooler days.
Which WIP are you hoping to finish next? Have you got a deadline for it? I’d love to hear all about it – it will help to motivate me to finish off some more of my languishing WIPs!
