Something That's Not Sleeves

I've had these two skeins of Cascade Heritage Paints in my stash for a couple of years now. I grabbed them when the yarn store in town closed (it wasn't very big, and it wasn't open very much so I never really shopped there, but it was still nice to know we had one). I really loved the loud colors, and even though I had no clue what I'd ever be able to knit them into, I brought them home with me.

Last month during the play I thought about knitting these up into a cowl, and I started it during production week, and it wasn't really grabbing me. Then I remembered my TPCT, and how much I love it, and how good it looks on me. The only drawback with my original TPCT is that it's just an inch or two too short to wear with my high-waisted jeans and get away with it at work. But it's easy enough to add that length in, and so I ripped out what I'd knit of the cowl so far and started on a new crop top.

It doesn't look like much right now, because all the yoke stitches are still bunched up together, but I'm only two rounds away from dividing the sleeves from the body, and then it will start to look like something pretty quickly.

  1. Aha, Not Sleeves for now, but you've now added two more to your list of them. :D Loving how the yarn is knitting up so far! Can't wait to see how it comes out.
