My boyfriend gave me a voucher to a specialist yarn shop for our anniversary last year, so I thought I should be a bit self-indulgent and make myself something biggish. I had seen someone else post a picture of a top they made using this pattern, which looked lovely. I started it in February, but between birthdays, college, travelling, and general being busy I didn't finish it until August. It's bigger than I wanted it to be (I cannot gauge to save my life, it seems), but I was able to fix that a bit with blocking, and I think it still looks alright.
The yarn used is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, which is absolutely lovely.
