WIP Wednesday

Not taken part in WIP Wednesday for a little while, but it's half term, I'm at home and it's bouncing it down with hail (I kid you not, it's June and we have hail!) with a sprinkling of thunder and lightning for good measure. Sigh. But that means I have time to join in this week, hurrah!

So, here's what I'm working away on right now:

(Poor photos, sorry, but you get the idea)


This is my copy of the Razor Cami - a cute summer strap top, which hopefully I might get chance to wear if the weather brightens back up before autumn's back again. Although it's more peachey pink than shown in the photo (bad weather = lack of proper daylight and poor photo results).

It looks really long in the photo, but it isn't and needs to stretch sideways to fit - I really hope it does. It has taken so long to get all that done in 4-ply cotton yarn (especially after I had to rip out the first few inches of pattern as it just wasn't working properly). Saying that though, this is my first 4-ply project EVER and once I got going it did work up quicker than I expected. 

I just have the ribbing at the back to do and the straps to add now. Hopefully I might finish in time for FO Friday - if so, I'll be back then!

P.S. Don't forget to visit Tami's Amis for more lovely WIPs :)

Sooooooo pretty, looks very soft and comfy. We've had hail of late too, lousy weather it seems is so much more common then it used to be.

I love it. The pink is so fabulously soft and the yarn has a nice sheen to it.

That's a really interesting stitch pattern :-)
