Sally's Combo Corset T
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:

Thanks so much! I was too fun to knit! I do think that I may change the ties because I don't like that yarn, but, all in all in works okay. Especially considering Sally is very, very hard to fit because of her short legs, she walks out of about every sweater we've ever gotten her!
