Kitty’s Chemise

Monday? Monday. Monday!

No wonder I feel like I am chasing a freight train. Or do I feel like I have been run over by a fright train? 

Hard to tell…

I all but abandoned Waterlily to focus on Kitty’s Chemise over the weekend.    

The pattern is from Jane Austin Knits…not typically anything I am drawn to, but you have got to love Ravelry….the price on the whole ebook has been reduced down to $6 from $14. (This morning I notice it has been further reduced to $2.99 over the last week…just my luck. Humph.)

   

The finished work is supposed to look like this:

I chose this pattern because of the shape and structure. I am hoping it might possibly flatter my figure, which always appreciates a little waist accentuating between my bust and hips, both of which are, ehem, curvy.

Knitting in worsted is awesome…going so quickly compared to those itty bitty stitches of a thinner lace yarn. At first I was disappointed in the Dream in Color Classy yarn…not the softest or most touchable and perhaps lacking a bit of stretch. It knits up plenty stretchy, however, and I do enjoy the color.

Mostly I just hope I chose the right size. Otherwise, one of my itty bitty friends will be receiving a very nice gift. 

Humph.

    that top is going to be so pretty! I love the shaping, too- and no doubt it’ll be a nice quick knit!

    That is such a temptation. But I’m trying to slow my purchases down. O if only it went on sale last month when I was spending like money was going out of style. *sigh*

      There were a few cute patterns in there, but I hear ya on spending money. Why doesn’t it just grow on trees?

      Thank. We will see how they come out. I find they often look better when someone else knits them up. Yikes!
