current knitting WIP
October 4, 2013
Here’s what I’m currently knitting:
Definitely the most complex project I’ve taken on. The white is a wool/silk blend I handspun myself. I ran in to the eternal handspinning problem: There isn’t enough of it to do a big project. But this stuff is super soft and cozy and I really wanted to make something wearable out of it. I got to the end of the white, thought I could either cast off and make a bolero thingy out of it. Or, rather than trying to find a white that matched exactly (a daunting prospect), I could find another, complementary color and make a 2-color shirt. I think it’s going to turn out well. I love the lacey off the shoulder straps, and I can’t wait to finish and try it on. I think it’ll go with some of my steampunk outfits.
