It’s good to have options and so this is a variation on Matinée. There’ll be a faux lapped placket, perfect to show off handmade buttons or a special shawl pin. The construction is a tiny bit different from version I, perhaps even easier :).
Test knit is underway:
I’m really liking “shopping the stash”. Having to move x2 really brought home to me how quickly things accumulate! Organizing my stash so that it’s tidy but visible helped. I’d had things neatly packed in banker’s boxes in closets but out-of-sight doesn’t exist for me. Getting everything onto Ravelry was a huge help too. The “Stash” used to be much less functional, more like a catalogue. I remember when there wasn’t a place for the price… Now that you can cross-reference to your queue and new projects, it’s amazing how much I’ve been able to work through. How much I have left to go is another story for another day! 😉
