Always thinking ahead

louet terraI’ve had this yarn sitting around my living room for awhile now. It’s a score from the WEBS anniversary sale.  I plan on using it to make a Waterlily soon, since that could also translate into some possible summer work attire.  It’s Louet Gems fingering weight in Terra Cotta.

Even with plans (and assigned yarns) for Waterlily, and a Linum Tee, and a Cowl Shell, I have been thinking I should make myself another Kit Camisole.  I have been wearing the hell out of the one I made last summer, and it’s use of linen and positive ease seems like the key to keeping cool and being able to wear a hand knit.  The Linum Tee and my recently finished Saco Stripes also use linen in the form of Shibui Linen, but it’s hand wash.  For my Kit Camisole I used Louet Euroflax Sport and that yarn can be washed and dried and wears like iron.  It’s well worth the cost.  I just may have ordered some yarn to get one of those going… Because knitting will never be done.

Tomorrow is the last day of the TTTKAL.  It seems doubtful that I will finish my Driftwood Tee before the end of the day tomorrow, but I’ll give it a shot!

  1. You are so talented…I’ve been inspired to try my first knitted clothing piece…not sure what it will be yet, but I’m looking for something a beginner can do … thanks for sharing your passion and knowledge :) Have a great day!

  2. I’ve been thinking about knitting another Kit Camisole too. I actually might rip out the finishing on my first one and change it a bit, since I think moving the strap placement would translate into more wear. Either way, I think a second one is in order! How convenient that my LYS has Euroflax in stock…

    • My LYS always has Euroflax too. Too tempting! Rip yours out? Yowza. Just to the strap part? Those straps do need to be adjusted or I have to live with bra straps showing. I don’t mind that so much though.

    • Yes yes, just to the straps. Basically, I just want to rip out the parts where you have to pick up stitches and then bind them off. I think I did mine too tightly, and since that would allow me to move the straps a little (I find them a bit wide-set) it seems worth it.

      All that being said, it still feels like knitting a new one would be faster/less annoying. Knit logic is crazy :)
