My Eyelet Chemise is coming along really well. I’ve completed the eyelet lace rib pattern and am up to the empire waist, having made the ribbing 2″ longer than in the pattern. I’ve stopped knitting now because I need to get my head around all the measuring and calculating needed to to the short row shaping that I want to try out on this cardigan. I’m using HoneyBee33’s brilliant ‘titorial‘ to help me figure this all out.
The Debbie Bliss Prima that I’m using is a pleasure to work. It’s soft and drapey, splits a little, but not too much, and has a pretty sheen.
I got buttons and ribbon for this project today, and I think they’ll make lovely finishing touches.
That’s beautiful, and the buttons are perfect.
It’s lovely. The buttons and ribbon also perfect!
oh it’s gorgeous. That up close shot just made me want to touch it!
It looks great and those buttons and ribbon will look great on it. Good luck figuring out the shaping.
That will be really pretty! (Though you have to wonder sometimes about the bare midriff issue–who can even *wear* something like that?) Your modifications will look just great. Funny, I actually just finished a sea of that same lace rib myself in a slightly similar pattern (http://amingledyarn.wordpress.com/gallery/short-sleeve-sweaters/ophelia-pattern/).
I love it and your post on it made me queue it. Great, another one in my ginormouse list.
It is looking lovely – the buttons are sweet. I’ve got this project down at #3 in the que at the moment. Last night I actually was dreaming about the yarn for it – I’m planning on using the Euroflax as they did in the pattern. Thanks for the link to the “titorial” – helpful information to have.
A little hair goes a long way!
