Cabled Summer Tee

Check it out - its done - YAY! Love the yarn and the color and the pattern was pretty easy. The yarn is Lobster Pot Whale of a Skein in Hydrangea. Do not adjust your computer, the color is more like a soft variegated aqua than hydrangea, which I always thought was either purplish- blue, pink or white. The fit is good and I'm happy with how it came out. It does need a blocking, but might just steam it so I can show it off at Stitch n' Pitch at Dodger Stadium on Monday night. Its not Dodger Blue, but its probably the closest thing I have to that color anyway.

What to do next? There is a sock project that got put on the back burner while I worked on the Cabled Summer Tee; but I'm itching to do a rectangular shawl. Haven't yet found "the one" yet, but I've seen some gorgeous patterns on Ravelry and the net. There are even a few crocheted ones and, believe it or not, I'm considering it! I know the basics of crochet, but I've never been very good at it. And also, there is still a bad taste in my mouth from the 70's. My mom crocheted some hellacious vests for me to wear and I swear I get hives upon hearing the word. But maybe its time to forgive and forget and move on, eh?

The top is the best one yet. We'll have to get a picture of you wearing it.

Pretty! I love how the front cable splits to travel around the neckline.

Have fun at Stitch & Pitch. We'll miss you Monday, but will catch up later.

Whoops! I was planning on going to Stitch and Pitch...but I didn't know it was tonight.

You going to be at The Coffee Bean tomorrow night? We missed you last week...

I like the color you chose and the way the cable seems to split to go along the neck edges. Very cute. Makes me want to knit one.
