I am delighted with this top, the fit is amazing and makes me feel all girly and curvy….
I love the colours, I seem to have a lot of these pink tones in my wardrobe, I must find another colour theme to work with!
for some reason I turned my camera upside down for these shots, why I didn’t think to turn it up the other way I do not know!
an upside down boob shot…see how nicely it fits? All the buttons look so pretty but because they were small the buttonholes were too big. If I make this again, I would leave out the buttonholes although they were useful as markers as any Elizabeth Zimmerman fan of the BSJ would understand. I sewed the fronts together too, this thing was far too slippery to stay neatly closed just with the buttons. I love it, I love both yarns used. This is definitely a hit!
I have also started crocheting this jacket using some ends of cones of cashmere and silk from Colourmart. This will be in ice cream shades. I have learnt a new stitch too, linked treble (double) crochet and although it is a bit slower than regular treble crochet, the close fabric is worth the effort.
Oh and I have made some progress with this Lily the Pink cardigan, I am knitting the back and fronts all in one to save time and to eliminate the side seams and ends. In fact I have already woven in my ends as I go, I hate ends! I bought the yarn for this cardigan at the Knit and Stitch show at Ally Pally last year. I have decided that it is not safe for me to go to these shows!
Here is the progress on the Rivendell Sock
A lovely pattern, very interesting to knit and the fabric is firm but springy! I am using some yarn from Amanda’s Sock Club at The Natural Dye Studio. It’s called Chi, which has a percentage of bamboo in it.
When will I get to finish all these yummy things? I have to go now and do some work although what I really want to do is sew this bag, after all, a girl needs something to keep her knitting projects hidden in doesn’t she??!!
