Thank you for all of the sock sympathy. The toe up didn't work for me this time, but I will not be defeated. The dreary weather over the past few days has been a catalyst for finished objects. Nothing is as comforting as the rainy drizzle, hot coffee, snuggly blankets, and a lap full of knitting.
Hi. I'm a rainy day picture.
Mint Leaf Tee
Based on this pattern
1 hank of Brooks Farm Duet
size 4 and 6 circular needles
I am so happy with this little sweater. The yarn is soft and fluffy with a rustic spin. There are thick/ thin spots and I like the nubby texture. I cannot for the life of me get a photo of the true colorway. I knit as directed only adding ribbing to the bottom and neckline. The rolled neckline was a bit too close to the 80's ripped sweatshirt look and I am no Alex Owens.
I haven't blocked it yet because I need your advice dear readers. Should I add the ribbing to the sleeves or leave them rolled? Discuss.
This is the lace panel. Wouldn't this look great on some kilt hose? I have ordered a bunch of yarn for holiday gifts. I am making everyone I know a cable knit toilet paper cozy! Just kidding.
I really am waiting on yarn for gift making. Which is of the surprise variety, so you won't be seeing it yet. I will be publicly knitting a sweater from Stefanie Japel's book Fitted Knits. Whenever I decide which of the fabulous designs I want to make first.
Ooh, this weather reminds me of a favorite: Overcast by Baudelaire.
