As many of you know, Annie Modesitt was recently on Knitty Gritty sharing a lovely Combo Corset T
I decided that I was going to give it a go using her combination knitting syle as my Aug. kal. Well, I wasn't very successful with this syle of knitting having had to frog it several time. I also decided I was finally going to put that skein of Swish I had gotten thru it's paces. It has held up very well thru multiple froggings, etc from when I was attempting to knit combo style.
Anyway, I decided to alter the pattern for Sally. I finished up when Lonnie and I were out of town on Fri. and had nothing to use for the crochet edge and went to Michaels and grabbed some glittery yarn (Sally is flashy, you know). I did 2 rows of single crochet around the edge and opted for ties rather than buttons, I just did crochet chains for the ties.
Since I only had one ball of Swish this ended up being a bit of a "belly shirt" for the girl!
I loved knitting with Swish and will certainly use it again, hated that glittery yarn, though!
Stats: size 7 needles, 1 ball of Swish, 1 ball of glittery yarn, the results:
