Sapphire, she is done!
A shot of the cable on the side.
Pattern: my own
Yarn: Pingouin “Sillages”, 6 balls
Needles: Addi Turbo 3.5 mm circular
Started: July 17, 2005
Finished: July 27, 2005
Notes: This tank went pretty quickly for 3.5 mm needles! I love the yarn, which was cotton, viscose and silk. I definitely could’ve made this tank smaller, but the fit’s not bad as is. I used a double slipped stitch edge on the armholes and straps, outlined in Annie Modesitt’s Spencer jacket pattern. All in all, not bad. Not the greatest, but not bad.
In other news…I went crazynuts with Knitpicks.
That’s Shine in Cloud (grey/silver) and Orchid (fushia), Sock Landscape in Yukon (the one in hanks), and Sock Garden in Zinnia and Star Gazer Lily. They feel sooo nice! Plans? A 3/4 sleeve pullover out of the Cloud, a shrug out of the Orchid (since now I’m all tanked out), and of course, socks.
I’m alllllmost done the knitting on the silk corset! Now I just have to pray for a blocking miracle for it to fit me. Seriously.
P.S. Thanks for all the input to my last post! I think I’m still going with the diamond spiral for banana cream, but I’ve got an idea brewing for the branching leaves pattern…
