I finally finished these 2 tops, and it is still warm enough to wear. Yea!!

I hope the link works if you are interested.

The pink top has 2 different colors because when I ordered more yarn, the color lots were different, but actually I like the contrast.

The orange top is a mitred square technique. The pattern is a modified pattern by Just One More Row "Watercolor Camisole"
It was alot of fun to knit!! I added a row on the bottom (too short) and just used 2 strands. One strand was a varigated color and the other a solid color. Turned out very pretty, almost elegant. I plan on wearing it out at night with black slacks.

What do you think?

Very pretty! They are both very flattering to your figure.

Nice kids too...

Both look very good. What's the yarn you used? I like the pattern it makes.

This was suppose to be a "stash reduction" The pink top is a yarn that is being discontinued called Echo Flash

The orange top is a mixture of Sinfonia (Tangarine) and another yarn from the stash that is too old to remember..
