Sister Tops Done

A's summer top read all about itLast summer I knit a top for A. K was with me when I bought the yarn and at that time I also bought yarn to make a companion top for K. Well, I finally got around to making K's version of the top. She wore it to her Kindergarten promotion celebration.

K likes halter tops so hers is a halter top. She likes sparkley things so hers also has beads. There are pink beads on the hem and green beads on the green bands. I had such fun knitting this top and it went very quickly. The top took about 9 days from cast on to wearing. I think K looks like a piece of watermelon when she wears this!
