A friend, whose style I really like, suggested Outlined as a possible knitting project for me. Twelve inches of ease through me for a minute, but I had a yarn that I figured would/could work and an interest in knitting something new.
Thanks to this pattern I am now the slightly confused owner of three pairs of circulars and I'm okay with that. The construction of those pattern was interesting in a good way. I used an i-cord bind off because the Vikkel Braid and my yarn did not get along. I'm okay with that. I think the i-cord works well with the three-needle bind off at the shoulders and under-arms.
I used Bamboo Pop, which is a bamboo/cotton blend. A bit splitty but I've worked with worse. I chose the yarn because I had the Strawberry already in stash and because I wanted a warm weather top. While friends are already dealing with snow and frost warnings, it's going to be 100F again today.
I spent a slightly shocking two weeks and two days on this project, must to the shock of my friends who figured it would take less than a week. Perhaps I could done in that time if I wasn't busy being social and having fun now and then.
Perhaps even more shocking is that I am currently working on a pair of socks for my best friend.
Happy Friday, people! Make it count!
