Well - finally got my Shapely Tee finished up!
Pattern: Shapely Tee from Knitting Lingerie Style
Yarn: Goshen from Webs (green apple colorway), cotton and silk blend
Needles: Size 3 and 5
Thoughts... I like the pattern well enough. Although they have you go down 2 needles sizes for waist shaping, and I really can't see that it made much of a difference. I'm not sure about the fit. Not sure cap sleeves are really the best look for me. Also, I didn't get gauge exactly, and thought I could block it out, but it's still smaller than it's supposed to be. I think the cotton/silk mix didn't take well to the recommend 'steam' blocking. I also feel that it's a bit 'obscene' with where some of the holes ended up - but I fixed that with a little tank top! And thank god for Amanda and her help to remind me how to crochet!
Well I wear it? Time will tell... but I'm glad I went a little outside my 'box' in terms of summer knitting. I never make short sleeve sweaters - usually the summer is sock knitting time. But, since I had lost some weight, I kind of rewarded myself with this silk yarn.
The weather is beautiful today... off to spend more time outside.
