Homesick Razor Cami

Castin on outside I was sitting out back this past Sunday wondering what in the heck I was going to do with the yarn I had just frogged. Some of you might remember my very first Montego? Well it's no more. I saw it hanging on my scarf rack and decided that it would get more use as a top or cami of sorts. Not knowing what pattern I was going to use didn't stop me from casting on for a gauge swatch. Gotta start somewhere. Knit Ridges In the coming days I was going to have a bunch of free time-mainly because I was working the Federal Election as Deputy Returning Officer. Which was an ordeal itself, but I made a good friend along the way. (Shout out to Morgan! xo) However throughout the day, I became increasingly sick. At first I thought it was allergies, being in an old elementary school gym and all. Perhaps my sneezing was due to the dust. Ha. Wishful thinking. The next day I turned up half dead to work and C took pity on me and sent me home. I spent the next 12 hours lying in misery knitting this: Morning time The Razor Cami. It's a simply sweet pattern that relies on negative ease instead of shaping to hug the wearers curves. With only one real pattern row I hardly had to glance down while watching the entire Bourne Trilogy that first night. I can knit like a demon when I'm sick it seems. Cathay Razor Top and here I am now as compared to my beaded halter/cami vs the beaded cami Two more inches and I'm ready to start the straps. I saw on Ravelry a version with thicker almost cap like sleeves which I'm going to try and duplicate. So far I really like it, and I can't get enough of the Cathay. It's like a soft hug against the skin.

Sorry that you haven't been feeling well. Razor Cami looks great though.

If only we could all get sick like that once in a while and knit like crazy while watching all three Bournes...

Wow, you really did get some knitting done. It won't be long before we get to see the finished product.

Love the color! So pretty. I guess the nice part about being sick is spending a whole day knitting. Makes the being sick part not sound so bad! Hope you feel better soon!
