I am working on rather small and quick project lately, which make me feel more relax. Of course, I still have a couple of big WIP on my hand which I have put on aside temporary until….I get back my knitting mood. I been eyeing on Liesl by Ysolda for quite a while, but keep thinking it the lace will take long time to complete. To my surprise it took me less then a week to complete the top, the pattern is so well written.
I use double strand of Olympus Cotton Novia trying to get the right gauge, some how my gauge still on the small side. I had to cast on the L size, it work out a bit tight on the waist line and I tried to block it by steam iron it….hmmm not a good idea after all. The whole top become too loose and I have to re wash it and tumble dry it… thank god, it shrink back to what it was.
