tops, tanks & tees!

yes! i actually have cast on. ;) despite no one seeing any pictures, and the fact that i have a thousand other things to knit. hahaha (upcoming market and class samples! yippee!)
and here's the proof.


and i have to tell you, i'm loving loving how this linen is working up. i feel like this is the perfect project for it!
the only downside to this project for me, (well no there are 2). one.. i wish i could devote more time to it on a daily basis... but i do have other deadlines that are taking huge priority right now... i bet i'll have something to show you tomorrow... and two... i sooo wish i could be knitting this on my interchangeables. but with the gauge i get, i am working on a 3mm needle. i know i could probably order a 3mm tip from a different company, but i'm not going to... so that means for trying on the top... that's right. scrap yarn. boo urns.
oh well. i'll be patient with myself for that. in the meantime though, i love everything else about this! and i'm already really looking forward to wearing my gemini!


i am so inspired by all of you in the kal. i can't believe some of you are already on your second top! wahoo! you go! i really hope i'll be able to join you on the numbers game! but for now, i have to just remind myself to breathe;)
tomorrow i promise to show you a little of what's making me almost panic knit in my sleep;)
hahahaha.

how are you doing in the kal? is your que growing exponentially like mine? ;) come chat! i love looking up from my chaos of a yarn life right now to convo with you! xo

  3. Realized I had to cast on Gemini with smaller needles after I finished the lace. I
    just rewound my cotton and shoved it teary-eyed onto my shelf. Am therapy knitting some Rae.
    Yours looks so very pretty though! Loving the linen!

  5. So last night I tried on my secret project, which was well over half way done. *tears* it is huge! Like 10 inches too big! So I have to tear it all out! :( So sad. Now I'm trying to decide if I should try again or just work on my first project...

    1. oh buffy! :( that's hard.... once you rip it back, maybe just set it aside for a little bit while you work on something else. but pick it up again later! xoxo
