Man, the weather just stinks. I've tried turning off the furnace but it gets too cold at night so I turn it back on. But some days, it's warm enough that I turn it off again. And it doesn't seem to stop raining (thank goodness we have a new roof)!!!! My plants are so behind - rain + petunias = ugly!!!!
So I've been inside and plugging away on something that will hopefully bring some sunshine & warm temps so that I can wear it.
Pattern: Lace Saddle Tee by Lisa S. Rowe (IK Summer 2010)
Yarn: Rowan Purelife Organic Cotton DK; 8 skeins (131 yds per 50g); col Logwood
Needles: 3.5mm & 3.25mm Addi Turbos
Notes: Made a bunch of mods (to do with sizing & gauge) which you can read about in my Rav project page. In a moment of panic, I got Gladys to buy me an extra skein (for a total of 10) but I only used 8. This cotton is really soft so I'll probably knit up a coupla washcloths with the leftovers. In the skein, the yarn looks solid but is actually semi-solid. Don't know if you can see it in the pictures or not but you can see the variegation in person. These pictures show the garment unblocked. I could wear it right away but I think the lace would look better if I blocked it properly.
You'll notice that there is sun this afternoon when I took my sweater out for a photo shoot. Guess my sweater knitting karma is working.
