Matador

I have a new finished project and I'm not sure how I feel about this one.

I did a swatch and tried to modify the pattern to work with the gauge of my beloved Misti Cotton I bought in Cali about a month ago. I had moderate success and it does fit, but not as well as I'd hoped. My mixed feelings probably have something to do with the fact that as soon as I bound off I showed it to my husband and his reaction was, "Eehhhh." As in "it's not bad but not good either" noise men make in lieu of actual verbal communication. I'll let you judge for yourselves. Forgive the casual attire, unwoven in ends and conspicuous shower curtain that are the trademarks of my photography.


Pattern: Matador from KnitScene
Yarn: Misti Cotton
Mods: Gauge, height and a few mistakes here and there

I think it looks nice but I think the Eehhhh wouldn't have been there if it were a brighter color. The color brings it down a little I think, but it is a beautiful stitch! Erica

Actually the angry face cake picture is him biting into ice cream. I think the face was because it was too cold! hehe
