Another week of Yarn Along!
This week, I’m plugging away at the tunic top I described last week. I finally caved and got a little notebook to keep my knitting notes in, because scrawling things on old envelopes from utility bills that I found in my purse wasn’t cutting it anymore.
I’ve changed my idea a few times since starting this top, and now I’ve settled on a simple design with lace edging on the bottom hem, sleeves, and a little bit of lace detail around the neck. It will also have subtle waist and bust shaping, but still wear with positive ease. I’m excited because I was able to actually create the hi-low look I wanted with short rows in the back.
Being an adult-sized garment in sport-weight yarn, it’s pretty slow going. Still, I’m very happy with how it’s looking so far and excited to share the pattern with all of you when I’m done!
I also finally finished one of the pillow covers that had been sitting nearly finished for ages. I think it’s looking pretty nice on our couch!
On the reading front, I’m still working my way through Martin Marten, though almost finished with that. Anna and I have also been flipping through Back to Basics lately as we plan our vegetable garden for the spring and summer. I want to have a salsa garden, and she is very excited to try her hand at growing corn. Are any of you gardeners? What will you be growing this year?
