Yes, I’m still knitting, and I have a finished object to prove it! It’s wrappy top #36 from the latest Rebecca (doesn’t that sound like a Westminster Dog Show announcement? “Wrappy top #36″):
I made some changes, which completely altered the essence of the sweater. Instead of mohair, I used TLC Cotton Plus, a 50/50 cotton/acrylic blend (it took 4 balls, so the sweater cost about $10 to make!). I wanted something more practical, and the Cotton Plus can be thrown in the wash. As you can see, though, I lose that super flowy, drapey, ethereal quality that the mohair version provides. I guess it came out kind of small, too, didn’t it? Well, whatever, I think I will probably get some use out of it. I can wear it with t-shirts and tanks in the summer, and I won’t have to worry about getting sand or mustard all over it!
