The camisole is getting there


I felt compelled to post, even though the weather is very dark and dreary and I can't get a great picture. I have the crochet edging and the buttons left to do. I still have to actually buy the buttons. But this is a pretty fast knit, and I had lots of plane and airport time to knit when I went to Mexico. I was inspired by Sandra (I love her colors), who did hers so fast, and knitted whenever I had a minute. I love the little wedges which give such a good shape, and they also break up the project, knit twelve rows, knit a wedge, knit fifteen rows, knit a wedge. Somehow that was very motivating.

I almost don't want to post, I kind of want the Mexico pictures to be at the top of my blog forever and ever. I thought about putting one in my header, but pictures of palm trees don't exactly scream "pine cone lodge". :)

  16. Me want one too please! Mm, knitting envy is a bad thing but having bought the book with Kris when I was in Norway last week, I am suddenly thinking that I may need one too ;)

  18. I'm so sorry to hear that it is still so dark and dreary over there! I didn't realize how important having abundant sunshine was to me until the weather finally started to be consistently sunny here and I started to feel so much cheerier everyday. The cami is lovely. The color is so restive and the shape is great. Do put one of the Mexico picture in the header! I say so for purely selfish reasons -- it would be so nice to get a vicarious vacation every time I visit. :)

  20. I really like the shape of the camisole. What is the name of the pattern (I apologize that I've probably missed your posting of it).

    You could always switch to Palm Tree Lodge for the summer...
