Somewhere out there my friend DJ is cursing me for getting this song stuck in her head. Hey DJ!
I've been on a knitting tear, people. I have in my hot little hands a fantastic summer sweater, the Krista Tee by Joan McGowan-Michael (got the pattern at Yarns Etc). Knit up in some delightful raspberry-colored Louisa Harding yarn, I cannot wait to wear it out and about.
I am so edgy, so hip and trendy, that I block my hand knits on concrete. Instead of blocking pins, I use nails. I'm tough like that. Rowr.
As you can see here, this little sweater is rather open. I'm definitely planning on this being worn over a camisole or tank top, but you know...if you want to shake it up...uh, yeah. But the pattern is well written and not a bad choice at all for a new knitter. I have completed the back, am halfway up the front practically, and the two short sleeves and voila, I have a staple for my summer wardrobe. I can't wait to finish it.
Did anyone else just start singing "Raspberry Beret"?
