In the midst of a few secret and public projects, I forgot about my Linum Tee. I’ve been so excited about fall knits like Coda and a secret sweater project I’ve been working on, that it completely slipped my mind that I have a fabulous lightweight linen top that is perfect for this unabating August. Seymour is an expert project inspector. I’ve altered the gauge to be about 26 sts over 4 inches, hoping this will be a top that won’t require an undershirt for casual wear. It will depend on how low that wave on the front of the fisherman’s rib dips when wearing it, of course. I’m making the 48″ size, and it should end up around 37″. That way I don’t have to think about altering numbers and I get the size I want.
I’m ready to do the short rows and neck bind off at this point. It requires too much focus to be taken to work for breaks or meetings, so it will be an evening and weekend only project from now on.
