With the completion of the wrap I moved on to my sister’s tank top. I have been promising this to her for a while so I thought I would surprise her at Christmas…or after.
The pattern is from Fitted knits and lucky for me my sister is tiny and fits the smallest size…whoot!
This is the front. It is a really basic drop stitch pattern that just flies…then the back is pretty much all 2×2 ribbing. The colour looks washed out in this photo, but it is a really beautiful dark blue from Shelridge farms in the DK which is the same yarn I used for the Oh! Canada Wrap. I really love how the yarn very subtly shifts. It is honestly one of the most solid hand dyed yarns I have ever worked with.
I am just splitting for the long neckline so I am hoping to have the front done in a few more nights of knitting. Tuesday night is girls night at my mom’s house so I won’t get any done tonight due to my sister being there so I think I will have to dig through the UFO
Pile mountain and find my next victim!
On the spinning front I have been preparing for my next sweater. I am fully aware that my last is not finished, but alas I have run out of yarn again on the sweater that eats yarn…let’s not mention that for now.
This is my own roving in a colourway called Overachiever. Both skeins are worsted weight and I have not quite settled on a pattern yet. I was originally planning on Flair, but I am not sure that I’m going to have enough yardage. The third skein is on the bobbin so I will keep you updated as I go along.
Not a lot of sock knitting going on around here for a few reasons. First of all, I prefer to knit them in the summer when sweaters are too heavy to knit and secondly I seem to be getting a LOT of holes in almost all pairs which is really discouraging me, any suggestions on how to avoid this?
