It’s time to crow.
I’ve made astounding progress this summer on my self-assigned warm weather tops knitting project . At the beginning of June, I posted about the first two completed tops:
#2 Bonny by tincanknits
Since then I’ve powered my way through two more:
#3 Still Waters by Julie Tujorman
Knitted in Louet Euroflax sport. This tunic is light to wear and the lace panels on the sides and sleeves provide lots of, um, airflow. I usually pair this top with a cotton tank underneath. My husband likes it paired with a sports bra. That last has only happened once, on a very warm and rainy day. I’m pleased to report that this linen dried out very quickly after getting soaked in a mad dash across the Sherwin Williams parking lot.
#4 Sterling Peplum by Klever Knits
Knitted using Hempathy, a yarn I’ve heard nothing but good things about. The day I finished this tank I put it on and wore it out to dinner with my husband. It’s a bit prickly next to skin right now, but will probably soften up a lot with repeated washing.
After all that stockinette I needed to take a break and knit some lace. So I threw myself upon Red Rock Canyon by Romi Hill with slavering glee. I inhaled that lace.
It wasn’t enough lace. I needed more lace. So much more lace.
So I cast on Evenstar Shawl by Susan Pandorf.
This one should last me for a while.
That blue top is terrific. I really like it.
Thanks. It’s a very useful piece.
Reblogged this on Chic 'n' Fish and commented:
Love love love and I have to share this!
I’m loving the summer tops.. that blue one would look great with a turquoise bandeau, or even as a swimsuit coverup!
I has that thought too.
Wow, your knitting is amazing. And so much in about a month!!
“My husband likes it paired with a sports bra”.. lol I laughed a lot, exactly what my husband would be like.
Love both tops, but especially the blue one! (and of course I adore both lace pieces)
You’re so nice to say so. Lace is just grabbing me hard right now. You know how that goes.
I love the linen tunic! I have some Euroflax in my stash and have been looking for the perfect pattern.
This was my first 100% linen project. I like it more than I thought I would.
Hard to believe you did all that in just about a month! Those tops are perfect for summer, both laces are spectacular! Can’t wait to see the finished Evenstar!
I didn’t really complete them in a month. There was definitely some overlap with the previous projects.
All are beautiful!
I am inspired to pick up my Evenstar again.
How far ahead of me are you ?
Those tops are gorgeous. And the lace!! Way to be. Evenstar is in the knitting bucket list.
Aw thanks. Some day I’m going to have an awesome knitted wardrobe.
Wowee! You have been busy! I’m really interested to see that Susan Pandorf when you’re done. Her designs are stunning!
Sterling is gorgeous. Time to get my hands on some linen!
You’ve been BUSY girl! Those tops look great 😀
Thanks. Yeah I went a little nuts.
Wow. Of the two tops you’ve knitted, I just can’t decide which one I adore the most.
I couldn’t either. It gets to be a problem…
Kind of a nice problem to have, though. 🙂
