Sideways

What a fun, quick knit!

Sorry that I'm not more of a model. We were going for a few quick, stealth shots at Park Day today. We're being discreet. Shhhhh.

The only awkward part of this knit was the bind off at the shoulders. The bind off numbers are based on the original number of stitches picked up. However, since it's a lace pattern, the number of stitches varies each row. I proceeded as instructed but did not end up with the same number of bind off rows at the end as the instructions suggested. To compensate, I just made sure the fronts and back matched as I worked.

Anyway, I'm very pleased with the results and think I'll get a lot of wear out of it.

Finally, I want to say thank you to everyone who commented on the last post. My boy just loves all the little notes!

I really like this- I have so many VK's but haven't knit anything out of them yet. This is definitely wearable.

Cute. This looks like something that will actually get wear time. Am I right? Or will this go to a pile of handknits?
