Refreshing Marigold

Ms. Marifresh
A worthy sequel!

Yup, I did it again! MM:II retains the essence of the first Ms. Marigold, but with a few minor changes to freshen it up a bit. And unlike
some sequels, this one turned out as good as the original!
Ms. Marifresh 2
No nukin' the fridge here!

Raising the bar. Er, neck.
Much as I dig the sexy, ultra-low, lookit-my-boobs V-neck of the first one, I wanted to raise the neck this time around so the top could be worn on its own. (Because really, a girl can only own so many white camis and doing laundry sucks.)

Since the pattern is top-down and ridiculously easy to mod, this was a very simple task. I just:

- Added 5 extra stitches to the left and right fronts in Part D (kfb on the neck side in Row 2 for the last 5 repeats).
- Skipped Part E.
- Started with Row 2 of Part F.
Ms. Marifresh 3
Let's see, am I really that boring? Um, yes.

Like the last time, I also added in some waist shaping, but did a few more sets and started them higher. Oh, and I made the bod a tiny bit longer. And
that's really all that's new this time! You can snag all the deets on the other mods and stuff from the first one. I even used the same yarn. Damn, I'm boring.

Soooo, hmmm. Maybe I should spice this FO post up with some different poses...

Here we have the Cheesy Model Shot:

And now I need a nap, because all that jumping around wore me out.

What? No coffee shot? Now if you're not going to show your head, you have to have at least one cheesey prop ;-)

I dig it and the first thing I noticed was the fact I DIDN'T notice your boobies first. I like that mod!
