Cheap and pretty

I’ve started a new project! It’s the Twist Front Top (scroll down) from Adrienne Vittadini.

The yarn is called Handwork Cora… I found it on Elann for $16.92 including shipping and handling last spring when I was still feeling broke from my work sabbatical. It’s a Cotton/Acrylic blend, and feels a bit odd, but it’s machine washable and I love the color (and only $16!) so it’s fine with me for this project. The pattern didn’t really show for the first few rows, but the further I get the lovelier it looks. Four-row-repeat lace patterns are so addictive. 🙂

PS, in other knitting news: remember Janell’s sunset socks? She’s clearly been living in the Pacific Northwest too long — she overdyed them a cloudy grey. 🙂
