Napatree Tee progress (11)

Oh hey I have finally been working on this top since I finished off my other distractions. There's still miles of mostly plain stockinette to go, but at least I've made it to the chest increase section. The colors still feel a little odd to me when I am looking at them from close up,...

Napatree Tee progress (10)

Here's today's progress update on my tee. You might get a bit sick of seeing it because I don't have any other knitting projects on the needles right now. Brace yourself for lots of small incremental updates I guess. Meanwhile I am enjoying the peace of mind that comes from not having way too many... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress (9)

It's another progress shot of my rainbow tee today. I got about an inch of knitting done since the last time, and you can finally see how the green/blue section is knitting up. I really like the colors, but they do stand out a lot compared to the blue/purple section. According to my measurements I... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress (8)

Here's the latest progress on my tee. Since I still can't work on my baby cardigan, I had enough time with this project to get to the color change. I admit I don't have a good feel for how all of the colors will work up, or even if I will have enough yarn to... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress (7)

There's only a little bit of progress to show on this tee. Just like last week, I spent my weekend working on the baby sweater and neglecting this project. Now that I have to wait for new needles before I can continue with the baby sweater, I have plenty of time to spend on this... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress (6)

I ended up spending most of my time this week working on the baby sweater, but I still got some work done on this project too. I'm really intrigued by how the fabric is knitting up. It's so open and drape-y. It is going to be a really great summer top. My only concern is... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress (5)

I put in some quality time with this project over the weekend and added a few inches in length. Now that I am over halfway through the blue/purple section you can see the marled effect changing. The yarn is made up of four plies, and the color change started with one ply blue and 3... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress (4)

I paused this project for a bit while I was finishing up my Wingspan. Now that it's done I am back to work on this simple tee. It is so soothing after all the complexity of that shawl. I am hoping that I can get it finished this month for Pride, but knitting the rainbow... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress (3)

Here's a little bit more progress on my tee. You can really see the marled effect of the yarn now, and I really like it. My biggest concern at this stage is how uncomfortable I am with knitting bottom-up. This seems large to me but I don't have a good way to get a better... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress

I have done a fair amount of knitting on my tee since last week. Now that it is just plain stockinette it is very relaxing. I still have to keep count of my rows for a few more decreases, but otherwise I can freely watch tv or pay attention to other things while I knit... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee progress

I have spent surprisingly little time working on this project this week. My wingspan has been taking priority instead. Still, I've finished the hem and have just started in on the main body. I'm a little nervous about doing a bottom-up pullover for the first time, especially since I will probably be cutting it pretty... Continue Reading →

Napatree Tee started

Once my socks were done, I had a craving for another simple project. This bottom-up cotton tee will fit the bill since it will be miles of stockinette once I get past the hem section. I ordered this yarn earlier this year and intended to use it for my Pride month project. Since this is... Continue Reading →
