Angelica-to-be July 21, 2006Posted by merp in Knitting.
I’m almost ready to begin my next sweater (cuz you know I don’t have enough to do).
Here’s the sweater, a birthday gift for my sister (not a surprise, obviously):
Glampyre’s Angelica (sold at Hip Knits for use with gorgeous silk yarn well over my budget)
And here’s the yarn:
Knitpicks’ Main Line (quite affordable, yet nice) in Dusty Lavender.
Here’s an outdoor photo of the same yarn:
Color is so hard to capture with a digital camera.
And here’s my X-Back Tank, as of Sunday.
Since then I’ve frogged most of it, down to about 2″. I don’t know if I calculated the gauge wrong or it stretched or what, but it was ginormous. I had done a little tentative shaping (the pattern doesn’t have any); now I’m doing really aggressive shaping, going in 6″ from hip to waist.
