SWAP item #1

Here is my first SWAP piece, which I whipped up yesterday.  It feels good to have a start.  The pattern is my TNT knit top pattern, Butterick 3344, now out of print.  I just added a cozy shawl collar.  It was so easy, I can see myself doing this again.  If I find a soft sweatshirt fabric, I'm definitely using it for a shawl collar pullover.
The fabric is a lightweight rayon sweater knit from a local German fabric store.  This top is the perfect combination of lightweight and cozy all rolled into one.  The fabric is so light and airy, but the comfy collar and extra long sleeves scream "snuggle up by the fire with a cup of tea."  It'll be perfect when the weather starts to turn cool and fall is in the air but it's not quite cool enough for a warm sweater.  I love the rich orange color, too.
