POW: The Kilimanjaro Top
The Kilimanjaro Top by Ramona Gaynor combines exploration and warm weather consciousness. If you are an adventurous knitter looking for a lace project, this top is perfect for you. It is worked in the round to the underarm and the front and back are worked separately back and forth. And the Blue Sky Fibers Organic Cotton Skinny is a delight to hold and knit with.
