Lots of exciting news!! Firstly, I've finished Sizzle. If you recall, this was frogged and reknitted. Well, it's finally finished (I mean the knitting and seaming is finished, I just need to sew up some ends, but I'm going to say its finished!). Pattern - Sizzle by Wendy at Knit & Tonic
Yarn - Classic ElitePremiere in Jasmine (pale pink). Lovely soft yarn (50% cotton, 50% Tencel). But it loks like it might pill, so we'll see.
Needle size - 4mm (instead of 4.5mm of the pattern because I didn't like the drape of the knitted fabric)
Modifications - Because of the needle change,I cast on a few extra stitches. And because I am quite short, I made all my decreases and increases at every 4 rows instead of 6. I also added extra decreases for the waist shaping.
Thoughts - I really like this knit. I think I'll knit another one in a more vibrant colour and make the neckline a little lower. After knitting the edging, it pulls the neckline in slightly.
In other news, a fews weeks back I answered a fellow knitters call for help and sent some Rowan Cork so she could finish her project. Look how much she used.
Now, look at what she sent me for a Thank you. There's chocolate (which is almost finished!), a Katia magazine, yarn in a gorgeous burgundy colour (cotton classic by Tahki,Stacey Charles) and some fabric and a super cute postcard! Thank you Becky, you really didn't need to do this. I really appreciate your kindness. I love your "Matrix sweater"!
