Do you people know how much I care about your delicate sensibilities? I’ll bet you have no idea. I finished this lovely Tivoli T-shirt yesterday but when I went to photograph my accomplishment this evening, I was horrified by the no bra boobies and big ole bread belly full up of my dinner of Grace Baking Pugliese, Emmentaler and salad. Because I care about you people, really care, I found a bra, and twisted myself up like a snake to hide the bread belly. I did not take off my obnoxious pj bottoms (I made those too though) or try to hide where the steam iron sphplooped during the steaming/blocking. Yes, your idol does have feet of clay.
What the heck is this quickie project your inquiring mind wants to know? This is the Tivoli t-shirt from Grumperina. This is an easy top, knit in the round from the top down and it’s FREE! Yup, Grumperina (aka Kathy) has come up with a winner here. This top is all about negative ease so if you knit it, remember to make it SMALL enough. Negative ease is your friend here people – I used the 31" top for my 34.5" bazoombas. I used Rowan Calmer, 3 balls, in the Sour colorway. I changed that name to Margarita immediately and can now see why you all rhapsodize over this yarn. I adore it and would love to make a cardie out of it. It’s stretchy and light and comes in yummy colors, the downside is the $11.50/skein price tag. That means I’ll have to save some pennies for that future Calmer project. My own personal jury is still out on the edges. They’re going to curl, a bit doesn’t bother me, but too much is annoying. Melissa did a single crochet edge to give it a bit of stability, so I’ll wear it to work tomorrow and see how it goes. Too curly whoorly and I’ll have to resort to the hook.
