I went to my favorite knitting spot a week ago, the outdoor tea shop by the water reservoir. It was nice and relaxing to have a cup of my favorite calamansi tea, homemade cookies and the most attractive item of all, new knitting magazines. Can you picture the nice atmosphere? ;)
Dolce Amore from Filatura Di Crosa that fits the 3 mm needles. I am so glad that recently there seems to be an increase of patterns with thinner yarns.
In a couple of days I produced this piece with one ball of yarn. It's so delicate and soft with just a minor problem. With one ball knitted, I can estimate that I won't have enough yarn for the set. :( This Dolce Amore has a great yardage 180 m (198 y) that induced me to think that 10 balls would be more than sufficient. Unfortunately the LYS that I bought them from, closed their business.
A solution would be to just knit the cardi. Since it's white color, I believe it's not going to be hard to match it with a white top. I will keep the ruffled bottom though, that's an essential detail I want to have. My only dilemma now is that the inner top has a waistline and the cardi doesn't. I could keep it but will that look odd with the one bottom design?
White Orchid has been since set aside until I can make my mind to rip it apart or to knit it straight. These days I have been checking ladies sporting one bottom style cardis. Interesting ,I spotted one that has a waistline and had only one bottom. It looks like that I have a yellow light to proceed the project. It's hard to make up my mind.
colorful balls on the tree! Hard to believe but they are wool pom poms. I was wondering whether there were any knitters gathering over there.
I am often bumping into knitting related things, could that be the fact that I think too much about knitting?? :D
