addition to my spring wardrobe
Pattern: Ruffled Surplice
Source: Mari Lynn Patrick, Interweave Knits Spring 2007
Yarn: Tahki Bali
Needles: US 10
Well, here it is. All finished. The ruffles, the ties, everything. As you can probably tell, the ties need to be made longer. They barely make it around my waist. I will take care of that one of these days. No worries. Really.
Overall, I like it. It is very pretty and had it not taken me so long to finish it, I think I would be more excited about it. Really, I am just glad to have it done with. One thing about it...it is very heavy. Don't know if it is the yarn or just the bulk of it due to the ruffles. There are lots of ruffles!
Don't know what I was thinking, making something so frilly for myself. Perhaps, by Easter I will have lost a few inches around the waist and I will be able to wear it then. It is a little too spring-y to be worn now. And frilly, I may be able to pull off at Easter.
