This finished object round up to you by nearly fall weather, a willing photographer, and the letter 'B.'
This number was completed and worn for the first time yesterday.
The pattern is the Zick Zack Tunic from the Spring 09 issue of Interweave. I was in love with the pattern, but wasn't sure how it'd look on my body type. I can happily say that I love the way it looks.
Obviously I didn't stray too far from the magazine's version here in terms of look, but the yarn used was 1 cone of Valley Yarns 2/10 Merino Tencel in Grey Blue and 1 card of shell buttons. The yarn has a lovely sheen and drape, it was perfect for this project and I'd definitely use it for a laceweight project again. All in - project cost about $25. Not too shabby, considering the results.
And just so ya'll don't think I only work in shades of blue, I've included my "Bumblebee" socks. Just a pair of ribbed socks in knit picks palette (which I don't like and still have another project worth of yarn to knit in).
Because the whole sock is ribbed, it has something around 50% negative ease. When I was working on them, no one believed they would fit, but they do, nice and comfortably snug.
