Ballet Camisole (Magknits)
I wasn't going to start anything big right now, but making socks and finishing Starsky, both things that I am NOT going to wear in this heat, seem less than inspiring at the moment! So I'm starting the Ballet Camisole. I'm very ashamed though, to say that I ripped my Picovoli apart to make this The fit just wasn't what I'd hoped it to be, and despite my efforts to tack the armholes a bit tighter it just wasn't happening and I knew it was destined to be another item to just hang in my closet and look pretty.

SO, I hope that my Knitpicks Shine will be much happier as a camisole!

Anyone in???

You could knit a swatch of the worsted, figure out what your stitches per inch would be, then going by the measurements on the schematic, figure out which size would be appropriate for your gauge. Does that make sense?? You would wind up making a smaller size than you would normally be (unless you're already a XS, then you might be out of luck!! ) because you would be getting less stitches per inch.

Or you could follow these directions:

Very cool, and I think that this would be a basic enough item for the calculations to not be too crazy.

(Can you tell I want you to join me????? )

OK, I have a question about yarn colors...I'm at my in-laws for a few weeks, and I don't have my color card here with me.
The colors on this computer seem a little off, so I'll need y'alls help.
The color CLOUD...is it more blue than grey? Or more grey than blue?
Or is it just grey? I can't tell.

thanks!

Looks Grey to me. I was confused for a minute because they have a Cloud in WOTA and that is a cream/off white color

Thanks, snephenie!
I think grey will work. I just got a new skirt and this top would work so well with it.
Now, to see how quickly I can get my yarn over here at my in-laws... :thinking:

I just read in a blog someones comments on the colour cloud. They said that on their computer screen it looked decidedly blue but when the yarn arrived it was more of a silvery grey. Hope this helps!

I am doing mine in the colour, green apple.

I really love this cami... and am dying to cast on, but I am in the middle of Calla (and can't finish until I get my Denise's back) and am working on a design of my own... Can't wait to see the finished product though!!
