Latoya tank vs. Norah’s capecho

Sunday, July 08, 2007

Three days ago I started to knit Latoya from (free and gorgeous pattern). On 16th July it will be my birthday and I was planning to wear Latoya tank on that special day (which I may celebrate it in the air as I’m planning to visit my parents in Romania and reach there by plane). I substituted the yarn with YarnArt merino stretch (50% merinowool, 40% acrylic, 10% elastane)

But, yesterday I found in the mailbox the winter issue of VogueKnitting magazine. My friend from Holland, Nadina, sent it to me as an early present for my birthday (thanks Nadina). She knew I was so excited to knit Norah’s capecho.

Now I am still undecided: to finish Latoya tank and then to start Norah’s capecho or to have two WIPs same time (which means I won't wear the tank on my birthday).

Wow, I hope you have a great time. That is a long trip. I can't wait to hear all about it.

Thanks for the comment on my version of Latoya. I think yours will be great--the merino will make the ribbing more elastic for a better fit. Also, you made the sides in reverse stockinette, which makes the ribbing and cables more visible. Great job!

Thanks, going to miss you! I am sure there will be plenty to read when you get back...
I hope you have a wonderful time with your parents.
Thanks for the birthday wish!
Have fun,
