Inventing the Universe
you must first invent the universe.
Once again, I am utterly and completely dumbfounded. Struck by the absolute coolness that I started with a bunch of yarn and ended up with this:
Lacy Aran Tank
Pattern: Lacy Aran Tee and Tank (tank), Reynolds Saucy #82302
Yarn: Reynolds Saucy 3 1/2 skeins
Needles: Addi Turbos US 5, 16"
Notes: I followed this pattern exactly as written - I think I even made it in the same color as the example - with one exception: I made the cables mirror images, because that kind of thing drives me crazy. This was a quick knit with minimal finishing. The fact that it took me 11 months is secondary to a winter in RI and a busy first couple months in California, not to any actual difficulty with the pattern. But now that it's done? I'll wear it all the time.
Best Thing About This Project: Finally being able to wear something I've knit in California.
(It's been so long since we've seen a finished object around here that I had to look through my archives and figure out how to blog it!)
Perfect for MyNewCaliforniaLifestyle in every respect, cotton, lacey, the blue of the sky, the blue of my eyes, this is my first warm-weather knit. And I like it. A lot.
