summer t's

i have added so many t-shirts to my ravelry queue in the last several weeks.

after finishing my gemini top from knitty, i was itching to cast on something new.

while at the beach with mom, we went into a craft store (ac moore) and i found a bag of "mill end cotton blend" in the bin, and i had a 50% coupon.

all i know about the yarn is that it is one pound, and a cotton blend. a blend of what? ... i do not know. yardage? ... who knows. do i have enough for my project? YES!

(the bag came with 3 large balls)

oh! the pattern is Valpuri --- a free pattern from berroco!

i have finished the back now, and will start the front tonight.

for the first time in a looooong time, i am actually using a cable needle. i just cannot do an 8 stitch cable in a yarn that has zero stretch, w/o a cable needle.

when i finish this shirt, i may cast on another summer/fall tee. i have queued mostly patterns that are either free or in my library, plus ... i do have the stash =)
