The trouble with working on two projects at once is that neither seems to go very quickly. However, I have finished the front of the Shapely Tee — here it is, blocking:


Please excuse the somewhat, er, suggestive nature of the picture; after carefully adding ease to the bust with short rows, it seems counter-productive to block the front flat, so I tried to preserve the curve created by the short-row shaping. It looks rather silly, though.

That’s all I have to show you today — and now I have to get back to work. At least the weather is yucky enough that I don’t feel deprived because I have to stay indoors; with luck, by the time the garden is crying out for attention and the air is warm and inviting I’ll be finished my exams and able to put a little time into other things.

Hsve a great weekend!

I’m sorta enchanted by the way you’ve blocked the T — it seems to have a life of its own, doesn’t it.

A career in Knitted Art, if the Classics thing doesn’t pan out. That’s what I predict.

Lovely blog.

I love the way you blocked that sweater front! It reminds me of the shaped lycra camis in the lingerie sections, lol. And what a beautiful Aran, too.
