Three Down…

picture-1682Nine to go!


I finished my Leaf T-Shirt this morning in time to be.. . late for morning tea at Kate’s. But it did mean I got to wear it out. And given it was a WIP the last time my friends saw it, it was great to have it done rather than be working on it again.

I was stoked with the way this yarn blocked. Knit in Patons Serenity, it bloomed beautifully when I steam blocked it.  The lace panel pops way more now that it is blocked, and I think it looks lovely.


The pattern calls for no ribbing at the neck, nor any at the sleeves, and as you can see, they roll a bit, but I like the casual look that this creates. After all, this is meant to be a T-Shirt.  I did, however, do 6 rows of 2×2 ribbing at the bottom as I didn’t want to lose length. As it happens, the length is great and I could probably have got away without this ribbing.

I started the sixth ball of yarn, but only did about 10 rounds out of it, so it was around 260g of yarn all up. This is so light to wear, the bamboo has to be experienced to be appreciated I think, but I would highly recommend it. I found the Serenity not to be splitty like some yarns, it’s a great choice. 

And now I’m going to have a break from sweater projects for a while as I knit my beautiful Blue Sky Baby socks!

    I love the sweater! It just went in my Ravelry queue. Which means I’ll get to it some time this decade! Maybe.
