WIP: Orange Tee


Well, it's been a while since I shared the progress on this. It's coming along nicely, and I can't wait for it to be done and on my body :)

I cast on for the back last weekend-I knew there was going to be some driving and sitting around, and I needed something plain. The front piece is almost done-I'm ready to start working on the neck, which I didn't want to mess around with last weekend. I've really been enjoying this-I thought the back was going to be a slog, but I ended up deciding to carry the twisted ribbing up the sides, so that helps break up the endless stockinette.

I also have to brush up on my mattress stitch soon-I haven't had to seam anything in ages! Most of what I knit is seamless, and it's been at least a couple of years since I last made anything in pieces. It's all good though-so far everything is going exactly as I'd hoped, and with any luck and determination I'll have a new bright orange tee in the near future!
