Shaped Lace Tee & Boy Shorts Pictures
So I have taken the pictures of my unfinished Shaped Lace Tee (I will try to finish it on the plane) and my Lace Boy Short matching panties (my own design - see previous post for sizing). The first pictures is a front, next pic is a detail and third pic is the back of the Boy Shorts. I will have the pattern available probably in a week or so, so check my Etsy store here for that. Next 2 pictures are of the Tee, of course.
Yarn used: Lion Brand Cotton Ease (3 balls for the Tee, 1 ball for the Shorts) in color194 Lime.
Needle size: US #7 (4.5 mm) and #5 (3.5 mm).
I loved working with the Cotton Easy very much. It is rather inexpensive yarn substitute. It is machine washable and dryable (but I am not taking a chance and washed it by hand). I will use this yarn in the futures for some other projects definitely.
Today I am leaving for the Czech Republic. In past couple days it was little crazy because I was trying to pack for the long trip. Finally everything is packed (except for few minor things) and we are off for the summer. I'll be traveling for next couple days so if you purchase any of my patterns on Etsy, please give me few days to fill your orders. since I will not have access to the Internet right away. Hopefully our Internet connection in Czech will work. We had it installed last year, but we are unsure as of it working. Otherwise it is quite a nightmare to find Internet access in Czech. They have Internet cafes in Brno where I can go; but most of them are in bars type of things establishments where people smoke and I usually have all my 3 kids with me. So I have to find a babysitter (or bother Grandma) to get to the Internet!! The connections there are usually very, very, very slow (very frustrating when you try to get in and out fast)! So please be patient if you have not heard from me withing 24 hours, which is my usual response time to your orders.
Off I go...
