Being inspired by Mary [as always] I'm going to post some knitting progress. Aside from 2 pairs of socks on the needles, my current WIPs are
Parabola, part of the Shibui-Geometry series, and I'm loving this so far. The pattern is pretty straight forward and I'm already at the neck and armhole shaping. This tank has two layers the bottom layer has a razor back which provides some interesting shaping, and the top layer has a standard tank construction. The design of this top is such that you can use the top layer as a cowl, but I plan to make a separate cowl following the suggestion of a knitter of Ravelry. I'm knitting this out of Shibui Staccato-colorway Tar for the razorback piece, and for the top layer I'm using Shibui Silk Cloud-colorway fog. I'm planning to pair it with some skinny black jeans as my holiday outfit.
