A quick comparison between the work on my needles now vs. last week might have you questioning what progress, exactly, I've made. HOWEVER, this piece is counterpart to the sister sleeve/bodice piece I cast off the other night!
While I'm still at a point in the pattern that is impossible for me to work during my morning/evening commute, there's light on the other side of the tunnel, and I will eventually be able to work mostly mindlessly once I get this second piece completed. SO, I've decided to stick with it. I'm completely fascinated by the construction of this top! It's entirely unlike anything I've knit before. And, the finished projects posted on Ravelry have me wanting my own.
As many before me have done, I decided to knit for a size(s) larger than I would typically knit. I will likely knit longer than the original design calls too; possibly with the addition of some light waist shaping. (We'll see how ambitious and on schedule I am by the end). My hope is for a slightly blousey drape. And, I'm hoping for a more modern-romantic fit. We'll see. I have a feeling this top is either going to be my biggest regret or triumph in knitting, to date.
