this is Bex, otherwise known as Ugh. (yeah, 3 letter words are bad-words)
i love it. i do. but each round is a challenge. there is no rest with this pattern. i really want to finish this pair. this is sock #2.
BUT, i'm really into my summer sweater (t-shirt) knitting right now.
i'm quite smitten with this pattern:
its official name is s8420 Woman's Top (yes, a very enticing name!) by Schachenmayr. i have ordered the book Inspiration 053 from Patternworks, and the yarn! typically, i'd work from my library and stash, but i had neither.
i could had just ordered the booklet and paid minimal shipping, but then i would have only had solids in my stash to work with --- which would had defeated the "look" of this top (and i really like the mottled look of the variegated yarn used).
this is the yarn:
it's called "multicolor" --- it's 100% cotton.
i think this top will look really nice for the summer, late summer, and heading into fall.
i am still knitting on my Valpuri tee --- i'm on the front now, abut 6" in.
i'm going to have to figure out how to juggle all the sock knitting & t-shirt knitting though.
