Here's the Summer halter I've been knitting over the last week for Tess. I realize these pics are very dark and washed out. I grabbed my Canon Powershot, but it doesn't seem to take very good photos anymore. Anyway, I'm getting close to knitting the straps. It's a fun pattern written by Alana Dakos which can be found here. For the green, I'm using Rowan Calmer in the colorway Kiwi and the pink is actually Berroco Weekend in a fun bright watermelon pink (fitting, eh?). I have to admit that I'm not really liking the Berroco Weekend yarn much. It splits very easily and it's extremely slippery. I would have preferred to use Rowan Calmer in a pink instead, but I just didn't want to wait for the yarn to ship. I also, mistakenly, thought that both yarns were 75% cotton/25% acrylic, but it turns out that the Weekend yarn is 75% acrylic/25% cotton. I hope that doesn't cause any problem when I go to wash it!
Okay, I guess I need to learn to knit an i-cord!
