I haven’t been terribly productive lately — whatwith the new job, writing, renovating the new house, etc. etc. So this post is of things I made a few years ago.

The major problem with this type of knitwear is that unless you use a super fine thread (which would take ages), it ends up being a bit chunky. I’ll keep you posted when/if I try something again for summer wear!
