In looking at the past few entries, I realized that I’ve shown y’all what I’d LIKE to work on, what I SHOULD work on and what I’m NOT working on, but no actual footage of what I AM working on. Situation rectified.
My present project is Ash from Rowan #36 (pattern #2). Instead of using Rowan Kidsilk Haze, I’m using the much more "Sil" priced Madil Kid Seta. This yarn has been a great sub so far, it’s the same gauge and yardage as the Rowan but only costs about 2/3 as much. Kid Seta is also super-duper soft, it’d have to be since I’m a founding member of the "Me NO Likey Mohair" advisory panel, plus it’s blended with silk and who doesn’t like silk?
Isn’t that a pretty little lacy number? I’m thinking of making so sort of fun summery skirt/top combo to wear with this. I also think it’ll be nice over a baby tee worn with jeans when the weather finally turns and stays warmer. Confession: when I knit this up I start humming that "Pretty in Pink" song from the Psychedelic Furs circa 1984. What? You want to sing along…here’s your spot.
