Secret knitting revealed at last. Sorry I was kinda mysterious about this one. However to my dismay. I don't think it turned out as well as I had hoped. When I first saw this pattern on Berroco site, I thought it looks comfortable and elegant. In the same time, I was also looking forward to an easy knit for the tilli tomas silk yarn that I had purchased sometime ago. I printed out the pattern and happily cast on without any second thought that it might NOT look cute on me. In fact, it was a pretty smooth sailing knit. No major issue with the pattern except a minor mistake on the number of cast on stitches for the smallest size.
About a week into the knitting, half an hour of seaming, I'm found myself constanly having have to adjust that drapey neckline so that doesn't falls off my shoulders during a brief fifteen minutes photoshoot. It was really annoying. So after spending a whole chunk of my saturday morning thinking, hoping to salvage this top. I took out my scissors and the ball winder. And next I know you can imagine what I did. Oh well, atleast it wasn't so painful to unravel the entire top and I actually enjoyed working with those silk yarn. The color is gorgeous. Who knows someday I will be able to find a suitable pattern for it.
Anyways, enough of my ranting. How was your three day weekend? Did you get to rest, knit a lot or did something fun? Mine wasn't bad. Let see, I went to a ballroom dance class on friday nite. It was totally an impromtu thing that my co-worker invited me to. I learned some basics cha cha and rumba moves. It was kinda fun. Had some really yummy indian food after the dance class. I ordered the same old dishes for the fourth time but never got tired of eating it...chicken tikka masala and some garlic naan..delicious!! Saturday morning was boring, spend the entire morning looking at that drapeeey top. Got tired, went out and did some yarn shopping. Well, they are not for me. I did pretty good and managed to walk out with just a copy of the latest rowan for myself and some habu goodies for a friend. Sunday, I was home all day sewing and that was it. Oh! I also bought some painting supplies. Thanks to my dear friend Cassie's inspiration, I think I will spend some time working on this old hobby of mine very soon.
Well, despite that not so successful knitting, I do have some good things to share with you, some new projects and sewing. Will talk about it next time. And Carlene my dear, I just wanted to let you know I haven't forgot about your meme. I will get around it, I promise. Have a good week everyone!
