11 down - 1 to go

I finished up the seaming and the I-cord belt last night for the Bonsai Tunic. Looking at it with all that lovely drape the yarn has I thought it looked good enough to wear without blocking so I took my chances with the weight and wore her to work today. I was impressed with how cool it felt for such a heavy top. Lots of compliments on it.

Can't say so much for my hair. Hmmmmm just had it cut and it hasn't yet finished telling just what the heck it wants to do. The sides and back want to do this little flippy thing so I just added some gel to damp locks and went with it. Top went flat by lunchtime. I'm thinking it wants to just do some wild tousled stuff and I should go back to the salon and have them cut the top shorter so it can join in on the ruffled fun. Maybe this weekend.

I pulled out Tailored Scallops again tonight and am just about to the armhole shaping on the back. 4 more repeats (or about 15 minutes knitting) and I should be there.

Tonight I finished up one of the Rock & Weave socks. I'm pretty behind on the 52 Pair Plunge knitalong and I think since the Sweater A Month knitalong blog will be taking a break in August I'll use that time to catch up on socks.

Found some little pepper buttons the other day, but I'm not quite convinced they should be put on these socks. The red isn't quite the same and the green is way off. Opinions??


  1. Love the Bonsai Tunic! It looks very nice on you!

  2. I vote for the pepper buttons. How cute!!!!
