Show off: Rue the Day tee

rue 2

This little tee only took a week to knit up (and I’m a slow knitter). The lace panel at the top was really fun and also quite easy (a good combination, in my book). The top rolls over a bit, so I might do a crocheted edge to fix it, or I might not. Haven’t decided.

Unfortunately the shirt is a little bit big (wide). I probably should have knit the XS for negative ease, but I seem to have a misconception that I am larger than I think I am so I went for the small. I’m not sure if blocking will help, but I’m hoping it will at least get the bottom to stop rolling up.

Overall, I’d say I am pleased with the outcome, but not overjoyed. Since it’s so quick and easy (and the yarn is very affordable), I could always whip up a second shirt in XS. We’ll see.

Rue the day – in progress

No, I haven’t finished my wool Penelopiad Pullover yet, but I’ve lost momentum because it’s far too warm out to actually wear. Hopefully this weekend I will seam up the sleeves and…pack it away for next winter 😦

So of course I had to start a spring tee, Green Gable. I purchased a lovely color of Cotton Fleece called Rue, and I’m zipping right along.

It’s hard to capture, but the color is a dusty greenish blueish shade – you know, sort of like the Penelopiad Pullover, hehe.

However, I’m a bit baffled by the math. My calculations do not add up to what’s in the pattern, but I don’t think I made a mistake (this time). I emailed the authors, the Zephyr girls, to see if the pattern is indeed wrong. No response yet, so I’m just going forward with hopes that it doesn’t make too much of a difference in the end.
