It's raining babies
I've found my knitting mojo again, but can't face the cable cardi just yet (I've done 6" of the sleeves). I was seaming the pink mohair insta-sweater when the call came out for a new Magknits. I trundled over and fell in love with the Ballet Camisole, so in love that I went upstairs chose some yarn and started knitting it right away. I cast on during the football (don't talk to me about the football) and finished it late last night.
The yarn is Sirdar Demin Tweed DK in Pink Sorbet (60% acrylic, 25% cotton, 15% wool). I did the 40" chest and used only 500 yrds / 150g of yarn - way less than I was expecting so I have enough to make a baby sized something or other. The yarn has pooled in a funny way (not funny ha-ha) around the bottom and across the chest which is annoying the crap out of me, but by the time I realised it was happening I couldn't be bothered to undo it. Stocking stitch in the round does nothing for me. I wasn't entirely faithful to the pattern for the front shoulder straps as I had contemplated short sleeves with the left over yarn. If I were to knit it again I'd use a solid colour. I think it's a great fit and a lovely pattern. Overall I'm pretty pleased with it.
Thanks to everyone who commented on the last post, I really appreciate it. Since Scout had such a sense of humour there's no shortage of funny things to remember about him.
