Mother's Day weekend was prime knitting time for me.
Friday evening I casted on for Mondo and plowed through the half the body.
Saturday I finished the body added the back and then ripped the back. A test fit revealed that the body needed to be longer. So I added one more repeat and re-knit the back again.
Sunday I knit the first half of the front then grafted the seam. Did a test fit. The arm was too deep by one inch. Ripped back the front and back by one inch and re-grafted. Second test fit was perfect.
Monday I had my fill of knitting scandalous and cleaned the house instead.
Tuesday I finished the front, sewed in tails and called it done. I love it. The cotton feels so good against my skin. Mission accomplished.
Now for the details. I converted it to a bottom up and choose to knit the body in one piece instead of two then omitted the ribbing at the bottom. Comfy cotton does not curl so I took advantage that fact.
And there you have it. A charcoal top that fits me perfectly. Life is good.
Zoe said the Mother of Pearl shield pendant is a great choice. I agree.
