This is a throwback post published on September 20, 2008.
Pattern: Sexy Vesty
Yarn: about 3.5 skeins of Lang Merino Superwash
Time to complete: one bloomin’ week!
Sometimes you get addicted to a knit. That’s definitely what happened in this instance. The yarn was really co-operating with me, and the little lace pattern was very simple to memorize (well, truth be telt, I only memorized it for the last two diamond repeats….)
Like many garments, I would see cute little tops of this particular fashion in stores and think “cute on dummy – not so cute on me”. This is the same line of thinking that prevents me from purchasing very heavily cowled sweaters, tights, trapeze jackets, super minis and clothing items with expressively-large buttons.
This one may get some use out of it!
In new cast-on news:
I was supposed to have something to show for myself re: a particular sweater in a lovely Russet-y shade of Samira Silk from Handmaiden.
Sadly, I’ve naught.
Well, naught that would be interesting to photograph.
I have already discovered a misjudgement in my design plans, and instead of frogging the very few rows I’ve actually knit, I will be doing the good ol’ improvised-fix in the end.
Here’s to hoping I’ve enough yarn to make this one!
I shall return with something to show for myself.
