The front of this tank was just plain stockinette, but the back is what makes this pattern special. It has this zig-zagy lace pattern that is really basic and easy to memorize, but is also really interesting to watch develop. Thursday morning I was looking at the project thinking I wasn't going to finish the whole nine inches I was supposed to, and then I reread the pattern and was delighted to see that the nine inches was when it was stretched as if blocked. Stretching the lace out makes a big difference!
The pattern isn't stretched out here. The lace really pops once it's blocked.
Last week there was not a cat photobomb, as has become tradition in the KAL, so this week Othello makes an appearance, doing the stretch that I like to call the "Halloween cat".
Next week, I already have some things planned for the blog, so it's going to get active over here again. You can expect some color dilemmas for another KAL, a fall/winter collection review, and of course week 5 of the Holla Knits KAL!
