THEA

Wednesday, July 07, 2021

It's my latest WIP and the jury is still out.

I usually know if I'm going to like something, but this feels a little different.  The yarn feels heavy and the fabric feels thick.  I'm wondering if the drape will be what I thought it would.  I like the color although I keep wondering what I will wear it with.  I have one pair of pants that might work.  
I'm going to forge ahead and see if I can get this finished and blocked and make it work.  If not, it will head to the frog pond.  
I really want a few summer handknits in my wardrobe.  I'm just not sure I chose the right yarn for this pattern.  And now I am dreaming about making this or this.  
So little time.

  1. That Sayer top looks amazing! I saw Purl post it this week and was adding to my queue rather quickly! Perhaps try this top with a drapier yarn? Maybe something with silk or fine cotton? The color is really pretty!

    1. You are so right, Kaet. I am frogging sweet THEA. I actually didn't even order enough yarn! UGH. Some days are just like that. Even in Australia! (Did you read that book? "Alexander in the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day?!!!!!") xx

    Love the sophisticated, summery color. Not my most flattering shade but I would want to make it work. Think it would look great with white pants. Also black, and gray. Maybe just the right shade of beige. Sometimes if you really love something the right pairing will eventually fall in your lap. Does the yarn have cotton or linen in it? Otherwise worsted in summer may be too hot? Just going by the picture it looks pretty nice. Chloe

  3. Sayer is a great pattern! I've made a few. A couple for gifts and one a half for me! Almost done with the second one. The yarn is beautiful!
