Happy, Happy

Joy, joy.

I've finished my chemise. I have to say that it's the knitted item of clothing that I am most happy with. I like the colour, the fit, the style, and the cost (all up <$15). Cause it's cotton, there's no itching either.

Joe was kind enough to take some photos - in between showers (I'm sick of all this rain!).




Yarn: Yarn Bee Cotton, Varnished
Pattern: Eyelet Chemise, Interweave Kits
Needles: 3.25 mm

That is beautiful, and a lovely colour on you.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I love those garish 70s patterns from book fairs as well!

Beautiful chemise - the fit really is perfect! Did you have to adjust the pattern at all? I got some Yarn Bee cotton from Spotlight on sale, and am hoping to find a use for it soon.

Kate! This top looks amazing on you, and I just have to say, yours looks much better than the original. Looks like you made some mods to the bottom section.????
