Spidery Tunic

I have a finished object (FO) to show off! This is the Spidery tank, from this summer’s Interweave. Mine is really more of a tunic, as it is really long on my shortie self. This was a real quick knit, and I really like how it turned out. While knitting it I had my doubts, as the lace pattern looks a little wonky all clumped together, but I think it looks really nice on.

Mine is pretty loosey goosey, and let me tell you, after wearing it all day yesterday, it has S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-D considerably. I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, which is a yarn I’ve never used. Anybody have any tips of how to get this back into shape/shrink a little bit? I’m a little leary because this yarn is 70% wool and 30% cotton.

Even Boyfriend approves, and Mister Hipster can be a hard one to please, and does not hold back…and I quote “it looks like something you would buy in a store." Success!

On to more summer knitting!
