I made it a v-neck because my mom doesn't like stuff around her neck and it is indeed not next to the skin soft, more functional for outerwear.
I also made the button bands taper down and I made a facing for the back of the collar.
Cutting it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. I cut the center after I picked up for the button bands and before I knit them. This made it easier to knit the kind of neckline I was going for. I'm soo happy it is finished and out of my WIP pile. I only have 1 tank, 1 minimalist cardigan, a scarf left to finish! The scarf will be for a gift in Sept. so really that is only two more UFOs to go!
And lastly to brighten your day I give you 2month old Grey in his Sweetpea ensemble. I had the pleasure of spending the day with him and Mariah yesterday. Is there any rules on how many times you can kiss a baby?
