Hey there Julia! Wow, I loooove that Cathay top. A picovoli? So cute! And I think it's so great that you're doing an elem school knitting program ... I was thinking of starting one at my son's school perhaps ... we'll see! (I knew of someone who did that and was able to open a not-for-profit account with brown sheep to order wholesale yarn, and then she also could get it for herself ... fyi!) Take care!


Hiya, the shape of your Cathay is lovely. I think you'll get a lot of wear out of that in the summer.

The Cathay looks terrific! And wow, what a bag!! I enjoyed your post and pictures of the kids in your knitting program. : )


LOVE that top! That blue is such a summery color. I must say that I covet your bag... I can't quite make out the brand name though - who makes it?

PS Thanks for the compliments you left on my PeaPod, it was so fun to make!


Other yarn suggestions for a second Tivoli/Picovoli: Valley Yarns Longmeadow (found at WEBS) and Rowan Calmer. I'm using the Calmer right now for a Picovoli and it's turning out well. Maybe the microfiber in these yarns helps with the creasing.


That color is amazing! Did you have a personal shopper?
