i've been working on this tank top that started out as a pattern on the bernat website but i decided i didn't like the neckline and when i finished it was WAY too short so i made it a v-neck using the honeymoon pattern on knitty and added 3 inches of ribbing to the bottom. i then had to sew the ribbing on, that took far to long for my liking.  but i'm pretty happy with the way it finally turned out, plus i am AMAZED that i actually got it done while the weather is still nice (early sept is amazingly sunny here).

cute!  what kind of yarn is that?  it looks like some sort of railroad track ribbon like eros or trellis.

thanks!  Grin

it's a ladder yarn called matrix (by bernat). i have 1.5 skeins left so i think i'm going to make a nice shawl with the rest. it also looks good paired with a bulkier yarn- i made a shuffle holder with it and some fluffy white stuff and it looks pretty cool. it's pretty nice to work with, but was slippery on my metal needles and i had to frog way back due to dropped stitches when i first started. but i love the way it looks.

how does it feel to have matrix against your skin? i have like 3 skeins of the stuff waiting to be knit up but am unsure what to do with it (afraid that it would be itchy). feedback please Smiley

thankyou!!! i'm happy that the ribbing at the bottom worked out- i needed to add it for length but also wanted to make sure it was fitted so it wouldn't be all flappy. i had to do it twice, but in the end it seems to have worked out.

matrix- well, it's not baby smooth, but it's not as bad as wool. it does get a bit itchy once and awhile, but i haven't found it to be uncomfortably so. i would say more scratchy than itchy actually, but not painful or anything. in fact, if i lean back in the couch and rub my back against it, i get a nice back scratch Wink
