Happy Halloween


Another post so soon? Well I thought that besides displaying this year's pumpkin, I'd best give an update on the backless summer top. Progress is slow now, perhaps because summer seems so very far away.

Anyway, it's a little lumpy. I seem to be tension challenged these days. I do love the look and feel of the fabric though. I was knitting outside one day and it looks gorgeous in the sun. There is a heaviness to the fall of it, so I think it will be quite slinky. Hopefully, the beauty of the yarn will compensate for the occasional oogly stitch.

There is a possibility that it won't be wide enough - a slight miscalculation in gauge. If that's the case, I'll knit a panel to add into the back. It should be quite simple considering the bottom half of this shirt is basically a tube.

Here's a picture of the front and back. I'm in the mood to get back at it but I must finish the laundry and grocery shopping first. After a night of costume sewing, I don't know if I can handle any more glamour!

I miss summer already. That's a beautiful top. I've never knit an actual garment. Well, nothing beyond socks or a scarf.
