FO and NBaT Progress

I finally finished my orangina top and I really like it. This is me in the morning yesterday. I wore it to work and got a bunch of compliments on it. The thing that was so strange though was that the pattern called for 6 balls of 4ply cotton but I only used 3?? What's up with that?

Since I finished my sweater up I was finally able to start on my nothin' but a Tshirt. I am using Rowan All Season's Cotton and I have to say I really don't like this yarn and doubt I will use it again. It is kind of rough and splity. I am also having a lot of trouble getting even stitches. I just hope it will block out well.

And I decided not to do a ringer t but I think I will be doing some border embroidery. Something out of this book

Besides that I've also started a new pair of socks. I think it would look better in plain yarn but I am committed to using up some of my stash before buying more yarn.

Hopefully I'll have more progress to show later this week.

Love your Orangina. Weird you only used 3 balls. I wonder how other people have found it. I wouldn't mind making this myself.

Your orangina looks terrific! That color is great because it will go with so many things. I used way less yarn than specified too - argh!

Love the top! I just found this pattern yesterday from a group I just joined and think after seeing yours I may be making this one soon. How do you like spinning so far? Have you done anything else? That is something else I have been wanting to try. Hmm...so many fun things to do and not enough time to do them all.

I love the idea of using border embroidery for your NBaT - I cannot wait to see it!

Is that sock yarn, by any chance, Lornas Laces? It looks suspiciously like the same colorway I'm using for the pair I'm working on, too.

Orangina looks great as well, even though the title doesn't exactly fit anymore :)

I LOVE your yelow-gina! It's fantastic! You are such a brave subway knitter! I live in Hoboken, and when I come to the City, I'm always tempted but I haven't gotten up the nerve yet!
