Something is sizzling!

in Knit and Tonic - Sizzle, Wendy Bernard

I finished Sizzle, but not without a little drama…I wanted to work on it Saturday at the Knit in Bar (KIB) that Robin had put together. And I did sew about half a seam after I got there and ordered a fantastic drink, but things quickly changed after about being there 15 minute. My phone rang with a support call from work. After assessing that I could do nothing at the KIB for work because I had no computer and no one else on my team could be reached, I left to go home and work. Don’t worry, though, the work crisis was averted.

So, Sunday was pretty much free to me except for laundry and pre-packing assessments of what I am going to bring on my trip. I sat down and finished seaming and doing neck and arm treatments. When I tried it on after the seaming was done, but before the seed stitch neck treatment, I got worried. I was showing off a whole lot!! But after the seed stitch was done, it really brought everything under cover. I love the fit! It’s seriously like a glove.

I only used about 1.5 skeins of the Tess Cascade Silk, so I have quite a bit of yarn left over to make something else. I’ll have to think about what that might be…

Don’t worry, I’m planning on wearing Sizzle on the trip, so I’ll get some modled pictures then.

Pattern: Custom Knits –  Sizzle
Yarn: Tess’ Designer Yarns Cascade Silk Worsted
Needles:Addi Turbos size 7
Notes: Sexy knit! Great fit and quick to get done.

It looks great! Too bad you had to leave early. We’ll just have to make up for it by getting together more often. 🙂

It looks absolutely beautiful, Amanda! You’re such an inspiration! Now, if I could just find the time to get back to my amateur knitting! 😉 Soon, I hope!

Great job! Good to know that it didn’t take that much of the Cascade Silk, as I think I have enough to make it now! Also good to know that it covers up a bit after the seed stitch goes on.
I scheduled the next KIB for 3/7 @ 2pm at Finley – sent ya an email.
