flow

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

I think that I might have a new favorite summer top.
Pattern:  Flow

Yarn: Seduce, 6 hanks for size Small
Needle Size: 8's and 6's.  I used circular for both. 
The comfort, ease and drape of this top are so wonderful. Probably acquired from the yarn, which I wasn't a huge fan of working with.  It is slightly slippery, and I am sure if I would have used bamboo needles instead of my addi's, I would have liked it better. I am not sure if this feel could be obtained with many other yarns.  There is only one thing that I would have done differently.  Knit this in the round!  That would avoid the seam, which I am slightly unhappy with.  It won't prevent me from wearing it though.
Oh, yes.  The necklace. Isn't it fabulous?!  I'll be back tomorrow to tell you more about that.

    It looks fabulous! How sheer is it though- do you need to wear it with another layer?

  26. It's funny, this is one of those patterns that I had no interest in when I saw it on the Berroco website, but after seeing your version, am really interested in knitting it now. I don't think I can give you any higher compliment than that!!

  49. Stunning! Someone else I was reading was complaining about that yarn, too. But she didn't say why, and I was curious. I'm sure it's for the same reason. In any case, any aggravation has to have been worth it - that is fabulous! And I'm off to check out that shop - all those goodies she sent are, too!

  50. Yeah, yeah, it's me again. I had to come back because... even though I have about 400 projects (with all the accompanying yarn)sitting in a pile of "things to do," I now have to make one of these guys. And why DOES it look better on you than the model?
