I did actually manage to get about half way up to the armhole shaping on Winnie while I was in San Diego:
|I've got 17 stripes out of the 34 I need.|
I like the transition from rib to stockinette:
I have no idea what I'll wear this with, but I really like it!
I'm so close to being done with Karanfil. I have all the major pieces done, but now I'm at the point of knitting the separate front bands and collars. It's one of those patterns that tells you to knit until it fits when slightly stretched, sewing into place as you go along. Not really my favorite thing to do.
I want to finish this one up quickly, because it is starting to be the perfect weather to wear it! I've knit both the front bands up to this point, and am just getting ready to start the collar shaping on the first one.
|I'll need to block the bands too.|
Then I'll have to knit the belt. The pattern adds beads to the cuffs and belt, but they really don't show, so I left them off. I also wanted this one to be machine-washable. I expect to be wearing it a lot!
