One more down! Not yet blocked; hopefully that will minimize my occasional weird baggy stitches.
Pattern: knit.1 ribbed tank
Yarn: Lion Cotton-Ease (discontinued color), about 3 balls, I think.
Notes: A nice little tank. Not an exciting knit, but a solid basic with some cute details, and it would be super speedy knit in the round–no finishing, fewer ends, and I could skip the endless counting to make sure the rows lined up (and I was still off a couple rows and had to correct for it in my seaming). I may well make it again, but I’d definitely work it in the round and make in longer. I’d also probably make it about 25% tighter. It’s a one-size pattern, but has a little more real estate than I need. I’d just as soon get rid of the extra width & make it longer. I’d like to make a couple of cute tablecloth A-line skirts to go with it, and maybe make myself some matching ties of the same fabric.
The pattern was simple and accurate & the only problems I had were entirely the fault of finishing late and sleepy (I seamed the shoulders with kitchener but spaced and had the tank inside-out, but with the ribbing, it’s just not enough of a big deal for me to sweat).
And I finished this last month, but forgot to post it!
Pattern: basic raglan
Yarn: Peruvian Highland Wool + my handspun
