Frock Camisole

I have been a little slack when it comes to posting about my knitting project. A few are on the go, most undergoing some kind of frogging so I ended up having less to show than the beginning! I did managed to finish this Frock Camisole last winter, but with it being winter there was very little motivation to wear it out. It was actually a very quick knit, took me about 6 weeks done very very slowly, but I am quite happy with the overall result. The Rowan RYC Silk Cotton I used was a little stiffer than expected, it did give the garment a more structured feel, but I am hoping it will be softer after a few washes.

On other news, my little zine Craft and Pointy was reviewed by the craft cartel’s podcast. Rather thrilled and feeling a little guilty for not pushing it as hard as I should. There are copies on sale at etsy, but I haven’t pushed it that hard as I need to print a new batch as my original run was only meant for TINA last year. I am working on issue 3 now, hopefully it will be ready for the MCA zine fair on the 25th of May. Send me an email if you are interested in contributing/ would like a copy / yell at me for making only an issue each year.

Full day of photos from various events and too tired to go through them now. There is something I haven’t posted about for a while and that’s my knitting. I’ve started on this camisole about a month and a half ago, but it took longer than expected due to lack of free time. The pattern is from Interweave’s Spring issue 2008, the pattern by Katie Himmelberg.

I knitted this using Rowan RYC Silk Cotton using 3.5mm needles in the round. So far, it’s been a very easy pattern to do, but knitting in the round always reminded me of walking around in a circle. Very little progress seemed to be made.
