Ruth’s Tee in Progress

IMG_9122

I was making such great progress on my Bias Blanket by Purl Soho, and then last night I couldn’t resist casting on another project.  I have an issue with doing that!  I try to stay completely focused and then I get the itch to start something new.  This has become increasingly dangerous with our own line of yarns at our fingertips (literally).

So last night at 9:00 I cast on my Ruth’s Tee by Rachel Ivy Clark in Nice and Knit Sock Yarn – Driftwood color way.  This will be the perfect summer t-shirt.  I realized that it has been awhile since I have knit anything on a size 3 or 4.  I would like to have this completed by the end of June so I need to keep right at it!

Kara gave me this Knitters Pride magnetic Pattern board for my birthday.  Its fantastic!  I highly recommend it for keeping track of your rows and keeping the pattern neat and orderly.  I cut the graph out of the last page and this works perfect sitting beside me while I knit in my chair.  You can find this locally at Creative Fibers in Windsor, or online here.

Have an absolutely wonderful weekend!

  1. This is going to be marvelous, I love that colour! Of course you were not able to resist casting it on, who would be :-)

  2. The pattern looks really nice also! Knowing you, both the blanket and top will be done on time!

  3. Beautiful pattern and colour. I dream of making vintage style knit tops, but got scared off when I began one and the stitch count in the pattern was wrong. Good luck with it!
