This week I’ve worked on my silk top and a new project. I finally have sleeves I’m happy with on my silk top!
I’m now working on the waist shaping and finishing the body of the top. It’s odd not working lace in this yarn any more. I am enjoying how fast the top is moving now.
Now for my new project: Rocio by Joji. Earlier this week I was frustrated with the progress on my silk top and decided that what I needed to relax was a project from a published pattern. I also wanted to play with my new Classic Elite Silky Alpaca. After lots of browsing, I decided this pattern would work well. It’s knit from the top down with the back worked first through the arm hole followed by the fronts which are joined under the armhole. I haven’t worked on it too much but I do like what I have done so far.
There is some pooling on the edges but I’m sure that will go away once I join the fronts. I found that this yarn was a bit warm to work with in the heat but hopefully it’ll be a bit cooler soon and progress can resume.
