Excellent weekend! I've been doing very little knitting because we had a long weekend here, so my husband and I decided to take advantage of the sunny weather and visit the Parc de la Tete d'Or
on Friday, and Vieux Lyon
on Sunday. I didn't get to wear Pagan on Friday as it was still wet blocking when we left in the morning, but I did wear it all day on Sunday. I wore it while walking around under a hot sun, and I was sure that the hem would roll up. It didn't! The garter band at the hem and all that blocking must have made it stay put. And the tank really is a custom fit. Aside from the waist shaping I didn't follow the pattern at all, and came up with my own shaping for the armholes and neckline. I usually have problems with tanks being too short, or too flappy around the waist, or too tight at the back, but this one is a good fit so I'm glad I took the time to rework the pattern.
On another note, look at this artesanal ice cream
we like to get in Vieux Lyon. The one in the front to the right is cassis
and that's the flavor I always pick. Either that or pralines. Yep. Grandpa used to call me Sweet Tooth, and I got the molars full of fillings to prove it.
