All Knitting, All The Time

I finished the back of Garnet yesterday, then I thought I would just cast on the front to see how the lace panel worked up.

I think it works up very well. Very well indeed.

I do see a problem with it... it's a bit more open than I expected. I'm going to have to wear something underneath it. I think my bright white bra peeking out from under the lace won't be very attractive, so I think I'll get (or make) a little flesh colored camisole for under it.

This is the first time I've knit a Elsebeth Lavold design. I've heard that her directions can be vague, but I'm finding this a very easy knit. Oh, and fast... surprisingly fast.

The only other thing that's weird for me is the gauge. I'm used to tight gauge. I like a firm fabric and since I do mostly textured/cable knitting, that's what I shoot for. This gauge is very loose (and nice and drapey, I might add) so it feels too loose to me while I'm knitting it. However, the back looks great and the measurements are good, so it's purely a psychological thing on my part.

Today is just a continuation of the same two knitting projects.

I am in game limbo right now. I've played both the good and evil story lines of Darkwatch (not much difference at all) and I started playing Jak and Dexter, but didn't enjoy it at all (tried to hard to be annoying funny and the game play wasn't a lot of fun). Oh well, just gives me more time to knit...

Happy Knitting!!!
