I almost forgot to post this week again. I can’t put up my little tennis ball project because it’s almost done and being gifted this weekend, but the entrelac purse has been blocked and I’m lollygagging on seaming it.
I also did a couple gauge swatches for a Shapely Tank Top with that big hank of cotton I got at Maryland Sheep & Wool. One of them came out good, I thought:
But then after I cast on it was way too big. So I did extra decreases so now I have way less stitches than even the smallest size in the pattern (I am doing negative ease as the pattern suggests). I’m a bit worried I decreased it TOO much. I know it will still stretch to fit me but I wonder how much length it will have to sacrifice to do so. It does still seem to fit within some of my t-shirts though, so I guess I’ll just cross my fingers.
Head over to Tami’s Amis if you’re lookin’ to see more WIPs.
