WIP Wednesday #93 -
Happy Wednesday everyone!
I don't have an awful lot to show you because I finished my Fishtail scarf! YAY!! and because I ripped back my Aerie scarf to where I made the extra stitch (come on, you knew I would) and have knit back to the exact same spot. Yay?
I have been working on my Creme Brulee top and am just about to split for the sleeves. I really like the way it looks but I'm a little unsure how long to knit the body for. I didn't knit a gauge swatch... Wait, wait! I had a good reason. I'm quite sure this cotton yarn will grow and I seriously doubt a small guage swatch would accurately reflect the way the full garment will behave. According to the pattern, I am to knit the body for 14.5 inches. I have stopped at about 13. Let's just hope I don't end up with a crop top. Nobody needs to see that.
Before I go, I cold use some opinions about one of my next projects. My LYS is up to the letter M in our "alphaKAL" and I am planning to do "M is for Madelinetosh". I am considering diving into beaded knitting and making a Faberge shawl (a pattern a scored for free a little while ago).
I have this purple yarn (colourway flashdance) with some great coordinating beads but need a second colour to go with it.
What do you think about green for the second colour? Too much? It is a lot of colour but I'm kind of drawn to it. My first thought was to use a light gray but I just couldn't find anything that was quite right.
Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!
I hope you enjoy a wonderful Wednesday and get the chance to swing by Tami's Amis to check out (a ton of) other WIP's.
