The Mysterious Tee
I knit up my first proper swatch yesterday. I washed it and everything. I ended up getting gauge (well, a good 90-95% of that 5th stitch is inside the inch mark - I'll call it gauge) and I cast on for my very first proper garment last night. This thing will have arms and everything! The last time I made a garment, was way back in October. I'm gonna make you find it in the flickr badge or the archives 'cus it's a bad picture and the garment wasn't much better. But it was a sleeveless sweater vest. It turned out well, got gauge (even though I didn't come close to using similar yarn) and I screwed up picking up the stitches for the ribbed edging, but all in all, it was a successful garment. But it wasn't for me. The only thing I've made for myself that was fitted has been socks so far. So I finally decided to take a step forward and make myself something to wear. I think I'll be lengthening the torso a bit, but beyond that, I'm sticking to the pattern. Wish me luck.
