It’s officially no-sleeves weather in these parts with the mercury steadily rising. Out comes the skinny cotton for some tank top knitting on our recent weekend break!!
This yarn has proven to be lovely in various projects in plain stockinette, but I wanted something a little more stimulating like errrm…some lacework!!!!! So I cast on and things were going great guns until I found myself squinting more and more at the lace chart. Blame this on sleep deprivation with a 5-month-old nursling and a son who is on spring break – yeah, we’re talking crazy combo.
I do love the way the picot hem looks….that stays, but the rest of the lace….sigh….has been frogged.
For the moment it’s back to good ol’ stockinette with just a hint of lace…not too brain numbing and I’m loving it so far.
Granted that there’s miles of knitting left to go, I am really enjoying the zen time this knit is providing and the bits of lace will provide in-built air-conditioning. Now, that’s what I call an all-round knit…lovely and functional!!!
At this point, I’m basically winging it with no specific pattern in mind just a picot hem and some sort of waist shaping. I’m NOT loving the colour changes once they’re knit up – funny that…they looked so good together when they were thrown together…just like candy floss!!!
