Just in time before vacation

On Tuesday we are heading to Naples. I am very excited about our travel. In the previous days we planned our vacation carefully, we will have nine days to discover the city and the area. I always wanted to visit Pompei, I can't believe, that next week I will be there :)
When I started to make my travel checklist I realized, that I need a light-weighted bolero or a shrug. Usually I am dressed in modest clothes, but there will be over 35 Celsius and I will wear tank tops and halter neck dresses. So  if I want to enter into churches, I'll need something to cover my shoulders. I started to knit a small bolero for the voyage. I hope that I can complete it tonight.

This is a top down knit, will be completely seamless. The pattern is improvised, but this time I wrote a sample before started to knit and make notes while working on it.
Before I went to the body, I had completed the sleeves, because I don't want to run out of yarn.

I chosed a generous skein of bamboo yarn I have already tried. See how light this bolero is:

My shawl is still in progress, I ll keep working on it during our vacation.

Wishing you happy knitting!
