I present BH Picovoli
(Yeah, I don't know why it looks all blue.)
I'm loving this top, it turned out really well & my attempt at lace was a moderate success as wellI decided against doing the three repeats that are in the Soliel pattern (mostly because I kept having to tink back, which was not fun). Anyway, it fits really well (unlike my last Picovoli) & I wore it today to work.Of course, while working I had a cardi over it - no tanks at work!
Here's another, in a "model" pose. I couldn't deal with taking one full front, I looked like a cow in each of my attempts. Not good for the already fragile ego.
I guess I was so damn excited to actually have a FO I had to take multiple pictures.
And I should have another one done this week (hopefully by my birthday on Thursday). This past weekend it rained & rained (quite a gorgeous thunderstorm on Sunday actually) and I was sick so I got a lot of knitting done. Also had the complete first season of Deadwood to watch - currently my favourite show.So this is another Caravan Cardi, because I love my first one so much - I wear it all the time. This one however is made up of the Knit Picks Shine Worsted, which has got to be one of my favourite yarns to work with - I love the feel of it while I'm knitting & it looks gorgeous. Plus it knits up FAST. I did all this in like 2 days. I won't have enough for long sleeves so it'll be a nice summer cardi. Love!
So as of 3 pm today I am on vacation! Not going anywhere, just celebrating my birthday with my GBF & other buddies & relaxing away from the soul sucking workplace. I have many books to read but my greatest worry (sadly) is not having anything to knit after I'm done with the Apple Cardi.
Well I still have socks. But I must stay away from the yarn store...oh who am I trying to kid anyway?
