As promised today we have some pictures. We also have a dilema and a small confession. First the confession.
I don’t like my NBaT! Well to be more correct I don’t like the neckline. It isn’t sitting flat and I think it is a bit fussy – one picot edging too far. I have made up my mind I am going to frog the neck and either replace it with a bias edging like Nona’s or maybe just a simple crochet edging like Soleil.
Second the dilema. Soleil looks great BUT – isn’t there alway a but, the neckline is too low to wear for work and the top is a bit dressy for anywhere else. Being only 5ft 1" everyone taller finishes up looking down on my cleavage! I have consulted with others – thanks Nona and Vikki! and I think I am going to knit a lace insert using the pattern from the bottom and sew it in to make the top decent.
Finally as promised pictures!!
knitted in Patons 100% cotton
Guess what arrived yesterday! This is going to be a felted brim hat from Chicknits. I’m fed up of getting a sore head carting all my windsurfing gear up and down from the beach. I have to rest it on top of my head to transport it because I am so short! I know the pattern uses worsted weight doubled but I have done a swatch and I have hit gauge first time witht the right needles so it should be ok.
Lastly but not least.
This is the very beginning of my Kiri shawl the yarn is Patons Coral and is a cotton mix, It is so soft to work with I am looking forward to this!
