Yarn choice yarn choice yarn choice. This top is cute, but consider it in a different yarn. Maybe plain red, off white or maybe green. Nope. Yarn choice. Thanks to Lisa from www.wild_deer.typepad.com, who designed this summer top, my first thought wouldn't have been the Katia Jamaica she suggests. I'd probably fall for something plain and boring like I usually do. (But don't get me wrong: Plain and boring works wonders if you're also wearing glasses with huge star-shaped crystals and the word D-I-O-R splashed all over the joint.)

I used two whole skeins and maybe just a few yards of a third of the Katia Jamaica in color 4010. Smallest size (and don't be thinking I'm super skinny. I just know that cotton doesn't have too much memory, so do yourself a favor and knit a size a bit smaller and add some length.)
