FO Friday

I'm thrilled at how this sweater turned out. Elann Callista is a perfect lightweight yarn that drapes well. Would I use the yarn again, most definitely, no problems with splitting and the garment washed well, I machine washed it and laid flat. While working up this project, I imagined the many spring/summer items I would love to make... that's how much I like the yarn. I also thought the yarn would work well for a dress, because of its drape. Well off to start my next project. Happy Weekend.

It looks great! Love the color with your suit. I've been looking at that yarn and I'm glad to hear you like it. Now I have question. Would you use it to crochet a top to wear in Las Vegas? I've been looking for sport weight yarns because of the weather here. Just wondering. Thanks!
