Thought it was time I made a couple of sweaters for myself. So now I'm working on a T-shirt.
I'm not sure the new neckline is going to hold up. It's a little ruffly which was on purpose but it doesn't look 'on purpose' enough if you know what I mean. So it may get changed once I'm done. I'm at the great divide here and it seems to fit well. Nice fast easy knitting with a linen/cotton/acrylic blend on a larger than specified needle. It's a yarn we're trying out to see if we like it. The jury is still out on that.

And my summer sweater is done!
Well, except for sewing in the ends and sewing on the buttons. So, technically it's not really done, done but it's so very close. Don't you love the safety pins? Stunning I thought.

I'm very pleased with it but it's going to need some more work if I want to write it up. The lace pattern is a 10 stitch repeat which is really hard to accommodate for many sizes. So I'm going to need a smaller lace pattern, although I like the vertical look to this one.
Time to get out a stitch dictionary or five. Tough work but someone has to do it, Ha!

  1. Summer sweater looks great, Deb! And you could keep the safety pins if you're going for a punk or retro look. Linen/cotton blend sounds intriguing - keep us posted.
