Ride the Flaxen Wave

Over in the Colorsong Yarn Ravelry Group we have just started a Flaxen and Lino Knit A Long. They are fantastic yarns (65% silk and 35% Flax or Linen) and since you get to choose your own pattern, and there's a discount coupon code for the yarns, you really don't have any excuse not to join.

I have decided to start (yes I did say START) with Flaxen in Glacier. It's the perfect yarn and color for my trip to Florida in April and I just have to knit a tank top out of it to wear at the beach. I knit up my swatch (23sts in 4" on size 4's) and I am knitting the Razor Cami. This tank was written in 1 size but gives you easy instructions for modification. I cast on for a slightly larger size, hoping for a 34-36" bust. After knitting the first couple of inches I realized that it was just a little to big (my gauge was a little looser than the pattern called for), so I'm recasting on to follow the pattern as it's written.

The KAL is going to be great fun and runs until April 14th. Head on over to Ravelry and join the fun!
