CYOAT the Third


I promise I'm still working on my Rhombille, but yesterday after work a bunch of us library people went out, and I needed something a bit smaller and less focus-intensive to work on at the bar, so I cast on another Choose Your Own Adventure Tee. This is the third one I've knit, and I really can't get enough of this pattern, it's definitely become my go-to for tops that fit and look good on me.

Since I'm knitting this in a worsted/aran cotton, I'm knitting the smallest size. I'm going for a straight cropped body and I'm modifying the sleeves to be mesh instead of stockinette. I really love the colors in this yarn, and I think it's going to look great with my hair. The yarn is rubbing off quite a bit on my hands, but I'm hoping a good soak or four will get most of the excess out.

I had my callback for Fiddler on the Roof last night, and I'm pleased with how it went. The cast list will go up some time on Monday, and then we'll have a month to get ready before rehearsals start. I'm taking advantage of these last few weeks of free time- the other day I started a new book, Nelly Dean: A Return to Wuthering Heights, and I'm really enjoying it so far. Books like this can be very hit or miss, and Wuthering Heights has been one of my favorite books since I was ten, so I really didn't know how I'd like reading another interpretation of it, but I'm finding this really engrossing so far.

  1. Congratulation on your callback!!! My fingers are crossed. :)
    It is perfectly acceptable to have a more mindless project for when you need to knit. Love the colors in that yarn!
