J is for Just In

I finished my French Girl Knits Delphine lacy cap sleeve top last night.  Here’s the Ravelry link.   http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Slipping/delphine-lacy-cap-sleeve-top    I just finished it last night in time to wash it and dry it so I could wear it this morning for work  I may have mentioned…I work in a knit shop and I love wearing hand-knits in the store.  I get excited and that makes customers excited and it’s just more fun.  Anyway, I had to weave in the ribbon this morning and made it just in time to get to the store.  The top absolutely has to have the ribbon…if not, it is not a just a “French Girl” knit, it’s a “French Girl in a Bordello knits!”  The sleeves fall down to an off the shoulder type garment….not a good look for a 40-ish year old mom with chunky arms!!!!!
