The Closet of Lulu Persnickety

A collection of oddities found in the closet of a most peculiar woman.
 

Process is showing progress... An inside peek on the Woodland Fairie Bodice.

As I have said before, I am not really a process person when it comes to my art. I don't feel like the process should be public when the final 'product' is what really matters to me. But here I am, doing something new. That's good. I have been working on my own design for a sweater. I really love the Nordic knotwork and have wanted to incorporate it in my own design for a while. My design is called the Woodland Fairie Bodice. It's a tunic style sweater with a knotwork waistband. So far I have completed the waistband and bottom half of the sweater. I'm hoping to have a V neck with the same edging as the bottom. The sleeves will be long, but there will be a cuff just above the elbow with the knotwork design. I am using Paton's Classic Merino Wool in Leaf Green for the knotwork on size 7 needles, and Paton's Classic Merino Wool Forest for the body on size 8 needles. The edging is Plymouth Yarn's Alpaca Boucle on size 11 needle. Most of the body is worked in the round.

Here's a close up of the knotwork.

Here's a view of what I have finnished so far, which is the bottom half of the sweater.
