Springing Ahead

with my kitty by my side....lol. Ms. Darla hung out with me as I casted-on and started the ball rolling on my latest project, which is a reflection of how bad I'm ready for Spring. She's resting now after I had to tell her to sit her behind down after tangling with my yarn... gurl was loosing her mind...lol. With my latest purchase of Elann Callista I went in search of a knit pattern and came across Badia, which is a tank with a center cable and lace. I started the project last week and was amazed at how fast I worked up the back. I guess after stressing over my jacket I went full throttle on the project and now working the front.

After working the front following the cable & lace stitch glossary, I realized that it wouldn't work for me and opted for just cables and you know how I love cables....lol. I had to rip back 5" of the the cable & lace...uggh! and do what I'm known for - I've modified the pattern, by omitting the lace and doing 3 rows of cables instead of one (which was very hard to photograph). Also I did the back in plain stockinette, the pattern calls for the cable & lace in the back and just felt it wouldn't work for me back there.


Another modification I would like to make is adding short sleeves, so I've been looking at other knit patterns for the right sleeves. Now off to print out a few patterns I think will work... seeyah.
