New Project

I love this Mandarin Blouse at the new IK, but I didn't like that the blasted yarn cost so much (it would cost almost $120 for me to make this). I also like the Sunrise Circle sweater...but the yarn for that is ridiculous too (I bought a substitute yarn today at Elann for about $30 for the whole shebang).

I have some Berroco Zen in a very pastel light green that I'm going to try to make into the Mandarin Blouse. I don't have enough, of course, but I ordered some more and am hoping that it will work out OK. It should make a great spring/summer top if it works. We'll see.

And I'm still branching out...and have only messed up maybe four times over about 30 repeats. Not bad. Not great, but not bad.
