Thank you to everyone who left such kind comments about my Umbre Lovre. I have not had an occasion to actually wear it out yet, but it is sitting in the closet anxiously awaiting its turn about the town.
Now that I have that off the needles, it is time to turn to the other sweater I have planned for this summer, also from Holla Knits -- the Holla Back Tank by Emma Welford.
I am using Knit Picks Gloss Fingering in Bordeaux, which knit up beautifully in the swatch. I once again ran into the problem of falling between sizes, but my stitch gauge on the recommended needles was a little small, so I am hoping to achieve the preferred amount of ease on the size 36. I'm excited to see how it turns out as I have not knit a seamed garment in a long time. Hopefully my skills have progressed enough to avoid some of my early sweater failures.
I was planning to have this to wear for the honeymoon as well, but now it is starting to look like it will be something I actually knit on the honeymoon as I keep adding more and more secret wedding crafting to my plate. Hopefully someone will stop me soon. It is becoming insane!
Side note -- everytime I read Holla Back Tank I think of this (starts at 1:50)
Hep Alien is the greatest.
