see? we DO still knit!

the ribbed corset is finished.

ribbed corset FO
see? i wouldn't lie to you

i waffled between buttons i could afford that jo-ann's had enough in stock to buy RIGHT THEN and ones that were more expensive and not enough in stock. i bought the ones i could afford. however, the main reason i bought the right then buttons was that there were 25 (i needed 22, but they came in sets of 5). the silver filigree ones that i loved came in sets of 3 and there were only 5 sets. alas, i only wound up using 11 buttons, so in theory, i could have gotten the ones i loved...

anyhow, the FO REPORT!!!

pattern: annie modesitt's ribbed corset
needles: addi turbo size 6, 32"
yarn: brown sheep cotton fleece in silver plum
date started: 06/22/06
date finished:
modifications: not many - i knitted it exactly as written. but realized that 22 buttons that were 5/8" in that amount of space were too many, so i removed half the buttons, and sewed it shut to prevent unseemly gapping
notes: LOVE. IT. love it love it love it love it. and i like it, too!

you make me feel so guilty about stopping after scarves. the corset is perfect, as expected. too bad about the buttons. next project maybe?

Are cardigans stylish anymore for men? I might start a new hobby here, Heather.

well grunty, not so much. but it's easier to knit sweaters without buttons anyway.

Hey, that's a really great top!
