Here I am in my corset.
I must say that I look pretty cute, considering that I'm wearing it while it's still quite damp. What a model must endure during a photo shoot. *Sigh*
As it so happens, I redid the sleeves. I was going to do a ribbing for a length and then flute them [Claudia did this type of sleeve on her corset and it looks fabulous], but thought better of it when I didn't think I'd have enough yarn. I just may go and get some more and redo the sleeves at a later time.
Pattern: Silk Corset Tank Top
Designer: Annie Modesitt
Size: I made the 39" for my 40" bust
Yarn: Paton's Katrina [92% Rayon-8% Polyester]in the colour Dawn. 3 balls without sleeves, 4 balls with sleeves, 1 ball white for trim.
Right now, I've started plugging away on Inishmore in the hopes of having it completed for my husband by Christmas. I think this will be possible, but considering how I've been with starting more projects than completing them lately, I could be fooling myself.
For those of you with pets, we all know they have their little quirks. My dog's quirk has always been a thing for my socks and shoes. Just mine. Not my husbands, not my daughters. Just mine. She swipes them faster than the speed of light [or at least the speed of the shudder on my camera]. The most she has ever done with them is take them to her bed and sleep with them. I've talked with other dog owners that have experienced the same thing, so maybe this isn't so unusual...until this happens
Yes, that's right.
She gnawed a hole through my handknit sock!
In a sock that I handknit!
I'm a little perturbed.
I gave her turkey liver for thanksgiving and she gave me a hole in my handknit sock.
Guess I better cast on for another pair.
Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving and Columbus day.
Keep On Knitting...
