Just Life

focused friday. linen liesl. finished.

…now after 8pm and I feel like I’m coming in just under the wire. but that’s ok. I really (really!!) wanted to do an FO Friday* post… my version of course has no capital letters, and since it’s friday (in 2011) starts with focused.

yep liesl (fka zola) is done!

once I got going (on the right number of stitches đŸ™‚ it was easy-peasy. a good bit of knitting, but not too hard. I love the bias bind-off and having the shoulder seams sit on the back side of the tunic.

I was a little bit nervous yesterday when I tried it on. finished, but unlaundered.**


but then I washed it. and dried it. and wow!

this is after wearing it all day. yes, I think it grew a little, but I know that a little spritz and a few minutes in the dryer will get it right back into shape.

LOVE! (raveled here).

*FO Friday = “finished object Friday” – an opportunity for knitters to show off completed projects on their blogs. 
**(I almost didn’t do this post because the photos are just … so… you know, not knitterly…. but oh well – did you see up above where this is my FIRST “fo friday” post??!!)
