Behold The Lilies
Oh look! Another white sweater. Hee hee. I think I see some color in my future, but for now I offer up one more white. This is a beauty, Lily by Marnie MacLean knit in RYC Cashcotton DK. I started it way back in January, planned to have it be my Easter sweater, but I got bogged down with all the changes I had to make to this lovely pattern because of the yarn being a different gauge. My stitch count, decreases and increases, just about everything was different and I had to wing it. I took no notes so could never recreate it thank goodness. If I were to make it again, I would make sure my gauge was spot-on and just follow the pattern as it was written. The lace pattern I did follow.
I took it out of hibernation a few nights ago and added a few more pattern repeats to the yoke, all the while trying to speed up the decreases. Then lastly, k2tog (twice), p2 and that drew the yoke in to get a k2p2 rib started for the neckline. The cashcotton is nice and soft to knit with. Mostly cotton with a little cashmere and a little bit of bunny too. I hope it holds up well. Raveled.
This will be going to Australia with me in November. Perfect for their spring. See you next time with some color!
