I’ve been hanging onto a cone of this beautiful golden yellow mercerized cotton. One of my professors during school was clearing out the yarn closet and was going to toss it and I just had to rescue it. I think it works great with this lace pattern. It’s strong enough to work the three into nine stitches, it’s crisp while still having a nice drape and very shiny for a cotton yarn.

The first go around I tried making a racer back style tank from the top down. I got to the armpits and I could already tell that it wasn’t going to fit right. The next time I tried just a basic camisole and that didn’t want to work either. I’ve frogged it a bunch of times and have kind of given up on knitting it for the time being. But I haven’t given up the idea.
