[july]

I'd had this Rowan linen drape in my stash for a couple of years. When I heard that the yarn had been discontinued, I decided it was about time to use it! Eklectika suggested a linen drape-along and we were off! I wimped out on my first plan to make a lacy top from Vintage Knits and instead chose Maggie from Rowan #31. The cotton/linen yarn seemed more suited to a summer top than the KidSilk Haze called for in the pattern. I had to fiddle with the gauge a bit and I lengthened the ribbing by about an inch and a half. I love it! It's light and cool - perfect for summer.
