Corset finished

Ok- I really like this pattern. It turned out nice. It fits perfectly. If I weren't so godawfully boobular I might actually wear it out of the house. Behold! The Silk Corset.

I made it out of Debbie Bliss Cathay, which is such a wonderful yarn. With the exception of my WIPS and the stuff for South West Trading, though, it will be my last in non-Cotton Ease for a while. Got to do something about the size of that pile before buying more (except for what I'll buy at Stitches next week-shh!) I pointed out to my husband that the money I've earned (or will receive soon enough) for the patterns I've sold and the Knitty article and the Cheaper Than Therapy stuff more than pays for the classes, hotel, airfare, and food for Stitches--even some for shopping, so he shouldn't get bent out of shape if I go a little nuts. This was my goal, after all, to earn enough to support my habit. It's working out, fortunately.

Oh fun--Stitches next week. I am not able to go to Stitches East this year, but I hope to in the future. It looks like a fun time.

Dare we ask where you WILL wear it? It's beautiful. And, since I'm working w/Cathay right now, I can see how you'd love it!

I'm happy the photo is up - it looks great! Are you going to wear it (just not model it for the world to see)? Great job!

Thanks for the tip about tossing the Noro into the dryer. I'll give it a shot!

The bucket hat is ADORABLE. Of course, it may just be the wearer.
