Modern Lace Henley

So, I’ve cast on for the modern lace henley by Pam Allen.  I’m using the mint green ‘perle’ from Eatons – some of the ‘good stuff’ from what I was gifted recently 🙂


I’m going to knit it in the round with a 2″ split at the hips, more tunic style I guess.  Also, I’d like long sleeves.

I’ve already made an error in the lace and I’m thinking I’m ok with that!  I don’t feel like pulling it back!

I tend to forgive myself a lot of my knitting mistakes.  LOL, they add character.

I’ve been getting a lot done lately, knitting wise.  I think part of it is that I only knit with circular needles now.  They are so much easier on my body.  My shoulder aches if I use straights and my hands hurt.  The circulars fit in my hands like they belong and I find them much more comfortable. 

Ok, off to stare at the henley and see how noticable that mistake is!  I’ll take a picture of it if it survives the night and you can see for yourself 🙂
