Syndactyl Salutations

Thoughts on writing, knitting, and the world around me.

I finished my Knitting Pure and Simple v-neck top this morning. I love it. I need to take photos, but the weather today has been changeable. Maybe I'll try the bathroom mirror approach in a bit...ETA: Okay, not the most flattering photos ever, but I've never claimed to be photogenic. Gives you a decent idea of what the top looks like, though, so I guess it's okay.

I didn't mind the acres of stockinette, it was a relaxing, mindless knit for me, which was what I have needed recently.

I did make some modifications: I shortened the body, because I have a short torso, and I shortened the sleeves, because I didn't want sleeves to my elbows.

I wore it today and it's really comfortable. I have a feeling that I'll wear it a lot.

There are several skeins of the cotton fleece left over, I think I'm going to use them to make Cece. More spring green than I know what to do with, but that's okay. Of course, first I have to buy the needles because I don't have the right lengths. I never have the right lengths, or never remember if I do. I seriously need a better handle on my knitting needle inventory!

Super FAB!!! Looks great and I think it's a lovely color on you. I think CeCe would work great in the left overs!!!
