Smile, The Sun Is Shining
And it is warm. I mean really warm for March. I'm not complaining. It gave me a chance to get home today and take some pictures outside while the sun was good for shooting pictures. I'm using my new remote I bought at Christmas and have not had a chance to really use yet.
I had a tank top on today and thought it would be a good time to get some pictures of Bloomsbury. Sure, I plan on wearing it with a turtleneck in the winter, but there was no way a turtleneck was going on today.
One of my most fave designers who does this well is Bonne Marie Burns. I knitted one of her tanks last summer and really was pleased with the shaping.
What I have done here is to just change the needle sizes at the waist and then back out for the bust. This is how Cheryl Oberle (of which I can say is my fave designer and to name drop, she is a friend), but anyway Cheryl uses this a lot in her patterns to achieve different sizes. It works for me, because I didn't have to monkey with the patterning on this one. Just pulled out some smaller needles and voila - shaping!
Love this jacket, but alas it is going to have to wait to be worn til next year.
