Miss Lovegood in Love with Manos

This is a throwback to a post published on July 10, 2008.

Yes yes, those damn books have done it again (more specifically, those damn movies) and given me an idea for a new knit.

I do realize that this is crocheted, and that it’s been done already, but my idea slightly varies from the original.
Here’s what I gots so far.
And here’s a preliminary sketch.
I was thinking of something that would be more figure-flattering than the movie version. Something I can cinch. Generally loose-fitting garments don’t float my proverbial boat.

Once I get to the “finishing details” point, I’m going to have to make a decision: where to place the belt.
First I was thinking “duh, at the natural waistline”, but methinks this will be a rather short cardi, and might look funny with a belt placed at that point.
A second option I came up with was to put it right under the bustline – an empire-waisted cardi.

I’ll get pics up of each option shortly.

On a yarnny note: I am so very much in love with Manos Silk Blend. Buy it now! I’ve used it for this knit as well as Hew, and it behaves very well and looks absolutely lovely.
