I'm really proud of this one. It fits nicely (after some serious stretching and blocking). I wouldn't mind another Beatnik in a bright color with stockinette sleeves instead of moss stitch. I was pretty thorough in my note-taking, so if you want to read specifics go to my Ravelry page here.
I used a different weight yarn than called for, different sized needles and knit the smallest size. That was wrong of me. I rarely knit a gauge swatch and when I do I kind of stretch it out and manipulate it to fit whatever it's supposed to be. Weird, I know. So here's a kind reminder to myself that I do not have a 32" bust and that I should always knit a gauge swatch. It's totes worth it.
|My mantra. It almost caught up with me on this one. Phew!|
Here are a couple of shoddy pictures of fabrics that I have in my stash. I don't really have a plan other than if I cut into something this fall it better be one of these fabrics or something teal.

I was supposed to head south this weekend, but unexpected events are taking me north for a little while instead. I won't be able to sew, but I'll get a lot of knitting done. Like, Kaide better be finished. I'm sick of talking about it.
