In the mean time though.....
I am a shameles copycat!! I just loved Lara's Flair so much that I had to make one for myself! yes, yes, I know! I told you I wanted to make the Phildar Swing Jacket next....but this will be a really quick knit, I just know it! and you know I can't resist a quick knit. I am still going to make the Phildar Swing Jacket (PSJ) because even though Wendy calls Flair a "swing cardigan" I think it really has a different look. I actually already have the yarn for the PSJ and will probably try and swatch for it this weekend. I just have to make this before summer gets here so I can actually wear it!
And just to show you that casting-on isn't all I ever do (though lately it feels like it is..heheh), here is a little progress shot of the Tatami Kimono.
I zipped though the back portion pretty quickly but have slowed down quite a bit on the sleeves. Those are size US 3s that I'm using! It's hard to tell much from this picture but it's knit all in one piece and you don't drop the stitches until the very end.
