Now, I am making progress on Orangina and the Lion brand t-strap top. I'd like to get those in the home stretch before starting something new. Difficult, I know!

Finished: Lelah-Penny Top!
I've finished my version of the Lelah Top. I wanted little sleeves on it, so I followed glampyre's instructions for Bad Penny up until I knit over the bust and then worked Lelah backwards. This was pretty easy, since all I had to do was interchange rows 1 and 6 of the lace pattern. It was fun to knit and my first top-down raglan knit. I am definitely doing something like this again. I love that there's no seaming!! I've worn it twice so far and it needs a washing. The yarn is from elann and was super affordable ($1.98 per ball, used 6 balls), but I am nervous about how it will hold up. I know I will wear this A LOT because I wore it to work on Friday and it was the first thing I wore that co-workers (some of whom are fellow knitters) did not know/ask if I had knit it. That's the best - it looked store-bought and not handmade. Whoo hoo!
