Homemade blueberry pie…yum-O!! Homemade knitting…hmmm… I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately with regards to my Summer Tee. I’m usually not pouty and whiny about knitting patterns, but this particular pattern is making me wah-wah-whine!
See what I mean? I don’t like the look of the floppy ribbing and how the lace panel insert is making the neck pucker all funny. Also, the lace was too busy for this yarn, in my opinion. There are plenty of gorgeous Rusted Roots on Ravelry, but I guess it was just not working for me.
Vineet actually peeked at the pattern when I began knitting it and said, “hey, the lady’s knitting is crooked” (he was referring to the lace panel being off to one side). I didn’t want to get into a technical discussion with him that the pattern actually intends it to be that way!
I don’t think that moving it to the center would be flattering – it would look like a great divide. So, I was going to knit a plain stockinette top seeing that I was determined to repurpose this yarn.
Enter the vast gold mine of information that is Ravelry…..
A look at the project page showed that several knitters have done mods to their tops and there was one with an all over swiss dot pattern that I ♥!!! So much so that I’m being a total copy cat!
What do you think? Better? Or, who am I kidding??
