I completed the front of the Drop Stitch Lace Tank and started the back, but it’s slow going because the K2 P2 ribbing for the whole back is not the most inspiring knitting. I really like this pattern and despite frequent doubts about length, stretchiness etc, I do think it will look good on me. So far the only alteration I’ve made is waiting one more pattern repeat to split the sides. Since I’m going to have to wear a cami under it anyway I thought I’d leave the buttons off and this way I can. But I’ve learned something from it – yarn matters. Not just the fiber and texture and feel, but color too. Yeah I should have realized this, but I didn’t really think about it. I like the Pima Tencel just fine, it’s the color, I think this will look good on me when done, but it’s not the most exciting thing to be doing 15 inches of ribbing it (it’s hard to get a good picture of the color, it’s a light green) Especially when I swatched for Mentionable last night! The yarn is beautiful! I know, I know! I shouldn’t be starting it but I have a good excuse! I’m taking the train to Kansas City this weekend and I need knitting to take with me! I don’t want to take the tank because I know I”ll finish it and that means packing two projects, this way I can only pack one! I’ve never ridden the train before but I can knit in the car (only when some else is driving!) so I’m assuming I’ll be able to knit on the train. See it’s totally justifiable! Plus I’ve had that kit forever and after see how Lara‘s turned out I just had to start it. The yarn is just gorgeous!
