Rules for Feeding the Stash

Finished: Zinone

Another finished project! I started this way back in April, and then I had to take a break while I searched for more of the yarn, and then I set it aside while I worked on my collection, and I finally finished it a month ago after picking it back up and going to town on it for a few days. I love this top so much, I'm definitely going to be making at least one more of these!

I knit this at a larger gauge than the pattern calls for, and I really do like how it came out, but my next one will probably be knit according to the pattern. The yarn is a discontinued bamboo/nylon from my deep stash, and it's about the lightest, floatiest thing I've ever knit. I feel like Galadriel when I wear this, seriously.

This was my first time knitting an applied i-cord for the neckline, and it turns out I love it. In fact, I promptly decided to include it on my Easy A, I loved it so much. I've been hesitant around i-cord bindoffs and applied i-cords up until now, and really, it was so easy and delightful, I'm utterly charmed by the end result.
