My lacey, white summer tee has a finished back
and part of a front.
That was the blind refusing to see. The gauge, although as suggested, was too loose for my liking. That was a rip Then the lace turned out to be way too stretchy for my liking. Another rip. Smaller needles, a re-design of the lace sections and I am more slowly on my way. I can see this little top taking a month to complete. Ah well - the never-ending saga of the knitter's life.
What concerns me now, is the bare bits. Where will they locate themselves? Above or below the spots that I wish to modestly cover is fine. I could then wear the tee without a tank underneath - much more perfect for a hot summer's day. But if the bare bits sit atop what is best covered, then a tank will be required.
Way too old for the current trend towards bare shoulders, mid-riffs and other body parts (truthfully, who isn't too old for that?) I am hoping for an air-conditioned-but-modest tee. I'll need to finish the tee before I know what the bare bits will bare. Fingers crossed.
