It is still gloriously Fall, but it has gotten colder. I was really loving the long lingering finish on this summer, the warm sunny days seemed to just keep coming. So as I was thinking about my November white shirt I was definitely thinking long sleeves and cozy.
When I got the grey sweater knit earlier this summer I also picked up the last little bit of the same fabric in a creamy off white. Duh! I am still fawning over it. I didn't have a huge piece, but I had enough to get a very comfy long sleeved top with a mock turtle neck that is cut in one with the yoke. I had seen the neckline on a sleeveless top at some point in time, and decided to try and recreate it and add sleeves. I am very happy with the outcome and the sweater knit is just the right weight for the collar.
I went back and forth about whether to run the 'cables' across the yoke. In the end I didn't have a choice...I didn't have enough fabric to do otherwise...but I really like the way it turned out and the cables help keep the collar fold neat and tidy.
November white shirt...Bam! I can't believe I'm almost finished with my year of white shirts. I might extend to January since I actually didn't start the challenge until February. We'll see...
