In my current carefree state of devil-may-care, do whatever-the-heck I please, I have cast on for another project, the Giotto tank from the latest Vogue knitting (design #28).
You may recall that I posted a photo of my Giotto a while back — it’s in the lichen colorway. I did a wee bit of knitting on the tank:
I love this colorway! I bought 3 skeins of Giotto but will only need two for the tank, so I’ll probably use the third one to knit a narrow scarf thingy. If I wear the tank under a suit, the scarf thingie will look nice draped around the jacket color. Tres chic am I.
The Giotto is a bit of a pain to knit with — I have to be careful not to poke the needle tip through the ribbon. But I’m sure I’ll get used to it.
And yes, I’m coming down the home stretch on the Checkerboard Shell. It is my commuter knitting, so it was getting short shrift. But I pulled it out and knit a bit on the train and at lunchtime at work. And now it’s done, except for the finishing. I’ll do that this weekend.
And yes, I’m still working on the Not-Colinette poncho! It’s almost done at this point — I’ve got 12 rows left before the finishing.
I’m thinking about which poncho to knit next. I have (cough, cough) enough Colinette yarn to knit ponchos in a number of colorways, as well as my pink/green Not-Colinette colorway. I may knit something else that’s on the Colinette “Vintage Knits” pattern — the Vintage Shawl. I’m thinking of doing that in one of my made-up Colinette colorways that has lots of Monet in it.
But Wait! There’s More!
I cast on for another shell, the Abby pattern available free on the Berroco website. I’m using Lana Grossa Point, in white:
This is the same yarn that Kristine is using for her Tank of the Ta-Tas. This will be my new commuter knitting.
In the meantime, Lucy contemplates the approaching weekend.
Have a good one, all!
