once again, i've titled a project of mine as that of a woodland fairy because of its color, my obsession with fairies, and the fact that i think it looks like something a fairy would knit herself. lol

so this is the Vixen Camisole pattern from Sensual Knits. i absolutely love it. it took so long to knit but was so worth it.(and might i add that this would never have happened if it wasn't for my beautiful boyfriend. he saw Sensual Knits in a book store, knew i'd love it, and bought it for me. he's so sweet and lovely)

i used Knit Picks' Edamame fingering yarn and then Oregano for the bulky yarn-part.

I love it! Was it difficult? I know you said it took awhile but I know that can mean many things so I'd love to know how you felt about the pattern in detail.
I want to try lace type stitches next and this is right up my ally!

actually, it's not difficult at all! it does not use any fancy intermediate stitches or anything. i'm still a beginner and was able to make it. the pattern is very repetitive so you start to form a rhythm and whatnot lol. the weirdest stitch it asks for is an ssk but that's easy. so you could definitely make this!

the reason i said it took so long is because the yarn is so small and the pattern calls for size 5 US circulars so a just a couple of inches length-wise takes a while. but i'm also a slow knitter. this would probably be a much faster project for faster knitters

Thanks for the info. I have just completed my first in the round project so I think I"m ready for a clothing item. I'm going to see if my library has this book so I can get the project details.
Good to know about that thin yarn on medium sized needles. I have that same problem with crochet. It's why I've never finished a few projects. lol
