I decided to join The Sweatshop of Love KAL at the last minute because, though I really needed to finish my EZ Pullover and Aidez, I had the Cotlin for this and Allyson always hosts a good KAL. It was a nice break from cables and worked up quickly. The little lace detail was easy to memorize and kept me motivated to work “just one more row.” I spread the work out over a couple of weeks, but this thing could easily be knit in a few days.
There are no mods to tell. This was super straightforward knitting. I used a size US 4 needle for all ribbing and a US 5 for the body. The yarn is Cotlin by KnitPicks in the Sprout color. I really like Cotlin. I’ve knit at least one other summer tee in it. I think it was Nachtfalter. I have more in my queue for this tee when summer nears.
Ah, I remember that day when my Cotlin went on a bike ride…
Sometimes I talk to my sweaters…
… with much animation.
Allyson is one of my favorite designers. She’s always got something good cooking. Most recently, it was the Holla Knits Accessories collection, and it’s killing me. I want a Woolly Mammoth hat, Cedar Glen Mitts, and Pom-o-rama Slippers so bad! But I have to get those two brown sweaters off the needles first. Back to work.
