The more you drink, the more you drink
Anyway. I have knitted too. Mia: I'm using Garnstudios Alpaca along with Kidsilk Haze. Very soft and cozy. Karen: thank you so much for your insightful analysis of the shitty leaf wristwarmer. I agree with you, and would like to add the puffiness around the wrist. The ones you linked too looks great, a nice pattern previously unseen. I'll go for that as soon as I'm done with my current project (can somebody please stop me!?)... These were actually the third wristwarmers I tried knitting, and I'm getting kind of sick of all these failures. It's a good thing they're quite small, so the hours and metres of yarn lost aren't too many.
My current project, which I started yesterday evening, as soon as I could sit up, is this pretty little thing which hopefully will look great with anything; summer dresses, white shirts... I have this idea that I look great in lilac, so this one's almost the same colour as the Lelah top, but knit in two strands of Garnstudios Alpaca (my favourite yarn, probably) and one strand of Garnsudios Vivaldi, a fluffy mohair. I was thinking of making a buttonhole where the brooch is, but I forgot to do that, so I'll go for the brooch or maybe a bow, if I can find a good way to fasten the ribbon. Also, I "modified" the pattern, so I'm doing it in stockinette instead. Revolting.
