Zaz wrote me a beautiful comment on Ravelry: "you made a tractor poetic and the fuggly sari yarn has a new side to it (....) here it is like a klee paintings touches of bright"
My husband calls it a fake.
Marguerite (who sent me the yarn) worries the sari silk might bleed. (I have changed the comment settings, Marguerite, so you should be able to comment directly on the blog, now. And I can reassure you, no bleeding after machine washing in cold water.)
Pinneguri asks me to come back from the potholder planet and show you more.
Ok, a little visit, here it is, my tractor tee!
The pattern is Striped top from Vogue knitting/ Designer knitting Spring/summer 2011. A long list of modifications:
Different yarn with a different gauge (18 in stead of 20). So I used stitch count for size 33 to get appr. size 37. My MC was Abuelita Organic Cotton from Pickles, and the CC Namaste Sathi Fils arc-en-ciel (recycled silk), given to me by Marguerite.
