In Time


I finished the Mitered Tank Top with over a week to spare before my son’s Middle School Graduation. After much ripping–I became obsessed with having even stitches, and working in a yarn that is not wool really challenges me on achieving that even texture–I am very happy with the finished product. Light spritz blocking also evened out the stitches beautifully, so I’ll have to keep that in mind for future projects. The top fits like a glove, and I think it will stretch, so I did very minimal blocking.
The Panda Silk DK ended up being so soft and was very nice for seaming. Just a bit challenging for a nice, even tension, and it was a bit splitty.

Before I start my next “main” project, I am going to finish one Solstice Slip sock. I figure if I do at least one sock in between bigger projects, since I’m not so good at the simultaneous sock knitting anymore, I will eventually get through my large sock stash.

Next up for “main” project: another tank, this time with my yummy Tess Microfiber Ribbon, purchased at Stitches East last fall. I’ll probably do the pattern that they gave me with the ribbon, a scoop neck tank that can be worn with the scoop in front or back. More to come!
