Setbacks.

It’s been a week an a half of setbacks. First, I decided to continue my venezia break, mostly because I discovered an error I made, ripped it out, re-knit it, then discovered anew how long it was going to take. Additionally, I ran out of yarn for the shrug I was working on, and don’t have the money to buy another skein yet. I was done with these things. Once that decision was made, I cast on for the lovely Pink Sundae camisole from Sensual Knits. I had the appropriate weight yarn, in the appropriate color. For some reason, though, I decided to knit a size that does not fit me.


(check out the weird puckering)

It is bulgy in the back, because, well, I just don’t have the tits to fill it out. So I have to undo the 3 needle bind-off and rip back to the end of the lace pattern, then add some hefty decreases. It fits well enough in the torso that I’m not going to rip it all out, though I thought about it. After a day of sulking, I decided that I would make something that I will finish/fit/be nice-looking/have enough yarn for. I am a greed gus, and managed to get 3 skeins of the most recent Sundara Seasons club yarn, color Candied Chrome. I cast on for Joie de Vivre, a cardigan from Sensual Knits.

Yes. I know I have lots of cardigans, but I plan to put a zipper in this one! So far, so good. It appears to be the correct size and everything.
