I'm ready for you, Minneapolis! (and I've decided that it's tuck lace rib!)
the shape from Mazatlan (KW#45) with
vee neck, elbow length sleeve and mid hip length for the body. Because I wanted
to add a crochet-look hem after the fact, I started off with stockinette waste
yarn, using the ribber comb for the cast-on, (see blogpost, Wasted...Not! Nov 25, 2008) so I would have it
to hang the weights for double bed work. After the ravel cord, I knit 2 rows of
stockinette and then transferred to the ribbed tuck lace arrangement - I needed
to have a plain row to be able to rehang the stitches for the hem, but found
that 1 row was not enough because they were getting moved around and some
doubled, so 2 plain rows worked much better. I used the crochet-look look hem from
Tumbleweed (KW#53) but didn't do the
RTR in the middle, just tucked the alternate needles on the last half and it
worked beautifully. I used the stockinette bands and buttonholes (starting one
tension number tighter to make up for this lighter-weight yarn) from Purple
Purls (KW#52) - it's gorgeous - I don't care how hot and humid it's going to be!
Hope to see you there!
