Knitting away on the Edwardian-inspired Shaped Lace Tee, I kept thinking of Diana Vreeland's wrongheaded take on Emma Pankhurst.
75% of what Diana Vreeland said in her lifetime was tommyrot but oh, the way she said it!
Here's the Shaped Lace Tee all blocked and ready to be seamed.
There are two simple lace patterns.
I recommend basting the sleeves in before seaming. There's the tiniest bit of fullness to gather in at the cap. The neckline gets a row of single crochet for a finish.
And here's my daughter wearing the finished sweater knit for her in the 33.5" size:
Pattern: Shaped Lace Tee from Knitting Lingerie Style by Joan McGowan-Michael. The pattern was clearly-written and simple, although the finished sweater gives big bang for the small effort.
Yarn: White Lies' Joy 100% merino in Shell Pink, 4 1/2 skeins. Beautiful yarn, whisper soft to the touch.
Needles: 7 and 5 (for waist-shaping)
The design, the yarn, and the fit all came together to make this one very happy knit.
And now I must away. I've got a copyedited manuscript that needs my undivided attention. I'll see you back here in a bit.
