April FO's: 1 of 3

I somehow got quite far behind on posting about what I am currently working on (WIP = Work In Progress) and even more behind on what has been finished (FO = Finished Object).

I had the idea to post about my three April FO's, one each, on the last three days of April... but now I am behind on that as well...

A New Shell

I love, love, love this shell!
  The fit is very forgiving.  The armholes and neckline are quite flattering.
I would definitely use this pattern again.

Pattern: Trace by Kristin Spurkland
Yarn: Tahki Yarns Ripple

The yarn is a thick-and-thin cotton "tape" yarn which contributes a super amazing amount of texture.  I purchased it at Gosh Yarn It! about two years ago.  The first shell I started with this yarn was about 3/4 done when I ripped it all out.  As happens sometimes in knitting, it just was not working.  I am so glad that I started a-New.


  1. This looks wonderfully wearable! Added the pattern to my favs!
