Finally, a little something done for me! Since my knitting clock is all mixed up and I'm dreaming of sweater knitting, I wanted to make a simple garment that would incorporate waist and bust shaping. Honeymoon Cami by Julia Trice to the rescue! This is finished just in time for our upcoming Mexico vacation. Yay!
Since I am incapable of following a pattern from start to finish and I am really short, I made a few modifications. The most noticeable is that I substituted a vine lace for the border instead of the twisted rib eyelet used in the original pattern. I like the scalloped edging that vine lace produces. I also used Elann.com Sonata yarn in the Spring Orchid colorway. This yarn is leftover from the Curve of Pursuit blanket I made last year - I ordered way too much yarn for that blanket, and I still have more left.
Since I substituted yarn and I like a tight fabric, this led to various stitch calculations due to my gauge and my measurements (which I will not post here, thankyouverymuch).
This is also done in time (OK, a little late) for my blogoversary! I've been knitting and spinning for 2 years now, which seems odd because it feels like I've been doing this forever.
The super secret project is almost finished. Hopefully, I can give it away and post it here soon.
