So, while I ponder the blue vest, of course it would be unthinkable to let my needles be idle. Here's what I've got cooking next:
It's the beginning of the Josephine Top from IK Summer 2007. Yup, it's no longer Summer. Seems like my knitting goes like that. But I've been eyeing this one for a while, so there. Here's a close up of the stitch pattern. Unblocked, of course. I'm doing this in GGH Scarlett, a sheen-y mercerised cotton. It's very, well, mercerised cotton-like. That is to say, the drape is lovely, the sheen pretty, but the knitting itself? Well....let's just say that it's cotton, you know? Not springy or forgiving, and very splitty, which is driving me bonkers. Nevertheless, I love how it's looking knitted up, so on I go!
