The shoulder shaping was simple to do but looks lovely.
Although the pattern has no waist shaping, I most definitely do, so it looks quite curvy when I am wearing it.
Can I wear it right now? No, because, of course, the weather has warmed up too much! I'm not really complaining, I sat on our balcony enjoying the sun this morning, although folks south of Chicago had more snow today.
I am currently working on another top up pattern. This is a Drops pattern, a cardigan in 4ply; Drops Delight and Drops Alpaca. This is the body, I'm on the second sleeve.
I also have some plane knitting socks on the go. I made the one in the top of the picture last year, Drops Fabel in the guacamole colourway. I'm making another pair but with cerise pink for toes, heels and tops thus enabling me to get two pairs from one ball of yarn. I am using magic loop rather than five needles for these, and I have decided that magic loop is (for me) the best way of knitting on a plane because you can't drop a needle down the side of seat. 2.5mm needles are really difficult to fish out of a seat mechanism, ask me how I know.
The pink guacamole socks will be in my bag for a trip we are taking next weekend to San Diego. It's a five hour flight so I will need something to keep me busy. I'm hoping for sunshine when we arrive but to be honest, I'll take anything over 15 degrees F (60 Celsius).
That's me for now, have a good week.
