summer to do list

I recently finished Katie's Razor Cami pattern and loved every minute of it.

I knit with Elann Collection Esprit, a cotton/elastic yarn, which was a new experience all in itself. I'm happy with how the finished product looks from the front, but I have to fix the straps in the back before I can wear it in public. The straps are attached at the very widest points on my back, almost at the armpits, which looks truly funky. I should say, however, that this had nothing to do with Katie's pattern, and everything to do with me knitting first...and thinking second.

The next thing I should do is finish the last sleeve and a half on my self-designed lace panel cardigan.

I'm 95% finished with this one (and it's about time, too!) but other projects are competing for my attention. I'd really like to finish the Prairie Tunic and wear it some time this summer. It's slow going, but I'm enjoying the pattern so far and I'm in love with the Dale of Norway Stork that I'm using.

Mmm...summer and cotton.
