After summer sewing, here's some summer knitting for ya. It took me pretty much the whole summer to knit this shirt.
The pattern is Uhura, the yarn is Dada nova. I bought 5 skeins of it and used up absolutely all of it. I did a crochet border around the neck, but didn't have enough yarn to do the same around the arms.
I omitted the keyhole thingy, because the neckline is already low enough, no need to have my bra peeking trough that hole.
I knit the top parts first, sewed it all together, then picked up stitches on the bottom of the band and did the body in the round.
I didn't do the folded hem the pattern calls for - instead I knit 6 rows of the lace chart and crocheted around the bound off edge to stop it from rolling.
|Wow, look at the pattern this zoomed out picture is producing. Zebra.|

Next project : anything to use up some of the yarn I have in my stash. I had my mind set on socks. Have the yarn, got the needles. Now all I need is to find a pattern. But guess what? There are THOUSANDS of sock patterns on Ravelry. How am I supposed to choose one?
