I have been knitting ... mostly sweaters though. I was at the beach all of last week, and of course took along way more yarn than I could possibly knit, but I like having options.
I started this top (it's the Liaison tee) last Wednesday. It's been in my queue for a bit, and I wanted to try out the Knitpicks Cotlin Dk yarn. It's a pretty fast knit too. I'm well into my 4th ball of yarn and the top only takes 5 balls (for my size).
I should finish this by the weekend. My goal today is to finish the back (this is a bottom up in the round top, then separate for front and back with a 3 needle bind off at shoulders, then the neck and arms are finished in ribbing). All that remains is the back, and finishing.
Yesterday I wore a new outfit. I participated in a ravelry OAL (outfit-a-long) in the Untangling Knots group. The idea was to knit (or crochet) a garment piece and sew a corresponding piece to complete the outfit.
I chose to knit the official top (Zinone) and sew a skirt.
The "official" yarn for the top is Quince & Co Sparrow. It's a really really nice linen. But, I was determined to knit from stash, and used a fine substitute ... KP's Lindy Chain.
The skirt is called Bristol, and is from the online sewing magazine Seamwork. The magazine has a $6/month subscription, and each month they publish a new magazine and 2 new patterns. Each month, I get 2 credits to apply to a download of a pattern. One pattern is 1 credit. I enjoy the articles too.
I'm not so sure if I'd make the skirt again ... but I definitely see myself making a 2nd Zinone top!
