Can't tell what this is? Yeah, if I didn't know, I'd have a hard time too. But this pretty purple object is the beginning of my Picovoli top from Magknits. The yarn is a beautiful purple cotton, Provence from Classic Elite. The hole-y ridges are the raglan seams. So far, it's a fun knit, and so much less complicated than I thought. But switching out my cable from the 16 to 24" Boye Needlemaster needles was a pain. I almost dropped some stitches, and I may have snagged a stitch or two in the process. Oh, well.
Here's the swatch that went with this project. For once, I actually got gauge! And isn't the yarn pretty? It's purple and shimmery and 100% Egyptian cotton. Its only fault is that it's a bit splitty.
Future Clapotis! Lorna's Laces worsted weight yarn, because it gets so darn cold out here in the Northeast, and because I want to have something pretty to wear when my neck and shoulders are freezing. Purple and green, a deliciously annoying color combination! And if you look closely, you'll see that the green yarn almost matches our green carpet in the attic room. Yay, I'll match the rug when this is done!
