taking a small break from the Harmony shawl...

i started something new last night. i had some left over cotton yarn and really needed a break from the Harmony shawl. so i cast on for... i'm not sure yet.

the pattern i'm "using" is the Krista tee from White Lies Designs. but i don't think i'll move on to the second lace pattern. i like the first lace pattern too much.

when the piece gets long enough i'll probably switch to stockinette, perhaps even the second lace pattern, to cover the bust area. and i doubt she'll turn into a tee. probably a cami or tube top.

i'm working her in the round, in one piece. i left a strip of 4 (or is it 5?) stockinette stitches at what will be the back of the piece... i'm planning on adding sweet buttons to that to make it appear it needs to be done up. you can spy that in the last photo, to the right.




this is a nice change from the shawl. i actually feel like i'm getting somewhere! i can see the progress! with the shawl a row takes so long it feels like i'm knitting into oblivion with little results.

I thought you said, awhile back, that you couldn't do lace? :) Very pretty for summer!

hehe... i didn't mention that i had to restart it a couple of times :) i think i'm getting the hang of lace. i used to count the stitches wrong. i used to count the yo's as one stitch but then count the decreases (k2tog, for example) as two stitches. on top of doing the yo's wrong, you can imagine how crazy things would end up. d'oh!!
