Knitty Surprises are Here

galadriel knittyIt’s time for the spring/summer extra patterns from Knitty, and there’s some cute stuff there for sure.

The Galadriel lace tank is a beauty, lovely for layering all summer long. The designer, Sophy DiPinto, calls the top an “epic quest” to knit something the elves would wear. I think she nailed it. (I’d love to wear it, too, but the sizing is a bit wonky for me. Or I’m a bit wonky for it, whichever way you want to take it.)

More lace — this time more of a T-shirt — comes in the form of the Jirachi pullover by Karen Clark, and then there’s the delightful Now in a Minute shawl worked by Brenda Dayne in a special yarn sold in shifting-color skeins that really make this project shine.

Any of these making it into your queue? I’d love to hear about it!
