I made a few mistakes resulting in me ripping this pattern three times. Definitely not a mindless knitting and it takes longer than usual to knit. I love the cable pattern though and I can somehow knit without looking at the pattern too much now. I am excited to start knitting two sleeves at once. Knitting in round is awesome, I can try it on as I knit and get the right fit.
Meanwhile, I completed Sencha blouse this past weekend
My plan is to add an embellishment to spice up an otherwise plain blouse. I am thinking about adding a cording just like Sarai’s tutorial a few weeks ago
This pattern is supposedly very simple but I ended up spending a lot of time sewing the snap closure just to make sure I get the right fit over all. The fabric is silk look a like rayon ($1.99/yard from Fabric.com), not bad for my first rayon project. When the fabric arrived, I was disappointed because it was rough and feels very polyester-y. Luckily pre-wash makes it soft and drapery. I have another 2 yard in turquoise for other future project.
