Why hello there! It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I have to admit, I havent’ been feeling very social networky lately. And not very in the mood to blog, for some reason. Until today. I thought I’d post something crafty.
I finished the Aran Necklace Camisole almost a month ago. This is what I worked on when I was really sick in July. Did I tell you about that? Oh god. I was soo sick. I ran a fever for a good week. And we’re talking a pretty high fever too. I seriously thought I was gonna die. It ended up being bronchitis, and it took me a month to fully recover and feel normal again. So, yeah, my summer hasn’t been super fantastic.
Anyway, the camisole. This knit kind of got me through it. It was a really fun knit. The cabling in the yoke was very simple and it made the knitting interesting. The miles of stockinette got a bit boring toward the end, as per the usual case.
I really like the way it turned out, though I have only worn it once. I wore it as a vest to work one day and the cotton and linen yarn made the garment grow on me throughout the day. This yarn can be washed and dried in the dryer, though, so that’s good. It’ll shrink it up a bit.
Not much else to say about that. Here’s the Ravelry info if you are interested in the fine details.
I have some other crafty pursuits going on right now that I’ll have to share in the near future. I’m working on a t-shirt quilt with my old Summer Reading t-shirts and I’m doing some embroidery on it.
I’ve also discovered beading! This happened this past week while I’ve been on vacation. I’ve already made three necklaces and a pair of earrings. So I will show them to you soon, as well. I might be addicted to this at the moment. It’s super fun!
