Enso was a really wonderful pattern to work from. Very straightforward, and the short version is a quick knit too. I used some Manos that I already had in my stash for this. It wasn’t quite enough if I’m honest. I could have done a better job by buying one more skein, as I am still a little worried that this is too cropped for me. I still associate cropped tops with my teenage years, tight singlets and midriff showing…definitely not a look I am willing to go back to now!

However, it is very warm and snug, very comfortable, and I think when it’s paired with a mustard coloured top a la 1970s and some washed out blue jeans it will look good.

IMG_9734Since taking this (awkward)photo I have unpicked the stitching that held the tips of the sleeves up, and I like it much more that way. But I’m far too lazy to redo the photo, so this one will have to suffice.

On to the next thing!
