WIP Wednesday: Nami

Nami - WIP 9 Feb 11

Nami (pronounced NAH-mee) is a new bamboo tee pattern I’m working on, named after the Japanese word for ‘wave’. I had the fish/ wave escape scene in Ponyo on my mind.

Knitting and simultaneously writing the pattern for Amity was a huge learning curve for me, and it was almost like trying a complicated new recipe: the first time using an unfamiliar technique is nerve-wracking, challenging, and sometimes painful, but after you’ve wrapped your head around the way it works you’ll know what you’re doing the next time around.

So with all of those lessons behind me, working on this bottom-up, cap-sleeved simultaneous set-in sleeve number (my favourite method of construction) is a walk in the park. I’ve really been able to relax with this one, and I’m enjoying it immensely. Vine lace on the bottom, 3×1 rib on the top, and a simple V-neck. Life is good.
