A knit for me

Posted on | September 22, 2007 | 5 Comments

I’m a little bit tired after my 2 month marathon knitting/designing/pattern writing session. So the other day, I settled down to cast on for my first garment that I didn’t design in close to a year. It’s the Sunshine Tank by

I’ve actually gotten much further since I took this picture. I’m done with the back and have started the front.

Radiance is a tencel/merino blend and it has a subtle sheen reminiscent of silk and is incredibly soft and drapey once washed. I think this camisole will be very comfortable. And it’s has just the right mixture of plain, meditative knitting (in the body) and something a little different and interesting (in the lace bodice). The lace itself is an easily memorized pattern and has flattering vertical lines as well as a zig zag wave that radiates playfully across the bustline. I can’t wait to be finished with this and wear it!

    But– it suddenly got cold here! It can’t be any better in NJ! Knit QUICKLY! Wear it before the frost!!!

    Pardon the hyperbole. ^__^ The change of the seasons feels great, but scheduling knitting around it is a pain.

    You sure had a lot on your plate! I’m almost done with my deadline knitting and I’m dying to just knit some of things I want to!
    Your tank is such gorgeous colors, enjoy it!

    hooray for “me” knitting! I just started my Teva Durham Jacket and it feels good! And if you knit fast enough, you just might get to wear it considering the warm spell!
