see? we DO still knit!

the ribbed corset is finished.

ribbed corset FO
see? i wouldn’t lie to you

i waffled between buttons i could afford that jo-ann’s had enough in stock to buy RIGHT THEN and ones that were more expensive and not enough in stock. i bought the ones i could afford. however, the main reason i bought the right then buttons was that there were 25 (i needed 22, but they came in sets of 5). the silver filigree ones that i loved came in sets of 3 and there were only 5 sets. alas, i only wound up using 11 buttons, so in theory, i could have gotten the ones i loved…

anyhow, the FO REPORT!!!

pattern: annie modesitt’s ribbed corset
needles: addi turbo size 6, 32″
yarn: brown sheep cotton fleece in silver plum
date started: 06/22/06
date finished:
modifications: not many – i knitted it exactly as written. but realized that 22 buttons that were 5/8″ in that amount of space were too many, so i removed half the buttons, and sewed it shut to prevent unseemly gapping
notes: LOVE. IT. love it love it love it love it. and i like it, too!
