Leela is done and has been for a while. With the chaos of the Fringe show there wasn't time to get pictures and then once the show was done I knew that I was about to get a fancy new haircut so I wanted to wait to show them both off at the same time.
Well the hair has been cut so the wait is over!
I love Leela and I love my hair! It's fun to have bangs and wispy layers (in the hair, not the tank :P) I do need to learn how to take care of my new haircut. There was near disaster this morning when my bangs all wanted to clump to one side of my head. I am really happy with my back-to-school haircut!
But enough about the hair, this is a knitting blog after all.
Close up of the lace portion (and my tummy!)
Pattern: Lelah Top by Christine Buhagiar (renamed Leela by the Jane)
Yarn: Rowan Calmer in Plum from Redbirdknits (birthday special)
Needles: Denise 5.5mm for the lace, 5mm for the top.
Date started: beginning of July-ish
Date finished: July 29th (I think)
Modifications: I adjusted the pattern for my gauge, made the body a little longer (13 pattern repeats) and added i-cord straps.
It was a fun pattern to make and the Calmer was a dream to knit with, as always. The ribbon had originally been purchased to go with Tempting so it's nice to have a new use for it.
In other knitting news, I'm almost done the Naive sock (I'll be finishing the toe today) which means that I'm going to be casting on a new project! I've also started some Christmas projects which must be done in secret but all will be revealed come January.
