Designed for Negative Ease

While it may sound like these words are describing my life, they are not. I have the nasty habit of ignoring things I don't understand. Take the Soleil pattern for instance. It says "this top is designed for zero or negative ease". I had no clue what that meant. What did I do about it? Nada. Zip. Zilch. I just ignored it. Maybe, just MAYBE, if I had taken the time to do a little research, my soleil wouldn't have ended up HUGE. I am still hopeful that it won't look so bad being loose fitting but the chances of that are slim (no pun intended). I have a photo but Photobucket isn't cooperating this morning so I'll add it later. I can't say enough good about the Butterfly 100% mercerized cotton. The drape is awesome. It feels good and looks great. I'm going to try to get a few more tops done in this yarn before my trip to Kiawah in August. I also ordered some Knitpicks "shine" cotton yarn to do something with...probably a smaller soleil. Have you seen the soleil with short sleeves yet? Check it out!!!
