Fixing what isn't broken


I'm still plugging away on my 4th Hey Teach. I had decided to add some body length, and for some reason this threw me off with everything else. I ripped the armhole shaping/neck shaping and other incidental stitches multiple times (I'm going to have a lot of ends to weave in!)

It looks fab on my dress form, but I'm still concerned that the ribbing is too high for my bust line. Weight gain = bigger boobs... and not in a good way. So, we'll see how it goes post blocking. Unblocked lace is almost useless to get a good feel for sizing anyway.

I also washed and reblocked my Hey Cara Mia:


This is basically what I wanted to replicate with the Classic Silk. Still not sure if I'm going to do full length sleeves or 3/4 sleeves.

I made one change with this Hey Teach: I followed the lace pattern with the S2KP instead of the centered dec (for comparison purposes):



I still sort of prefer the centered decrease, but there is something very "lace-like" about the S2KP.

So two major things to decide. The sleeve length and the buttons. All three of the versions I've made I only did buttons on the lace yoke. I'm still leaning towards that, but I'm thinking more smaller dainty buttons? Hmmm... think I'll tackle the sleeves first.

  1. I may have to break down and knit one of these. I know I'm going to have "boobage" issues too.
