The TNT that I've not only made the most versions of, but also wear the most, is that ubiquitous Burda turtleneck/funnel neck T from September 2010. The weather is calling for more of these, so I whipped one up last week out of a wool viscose blend knit that I ordered from Emma One Sock over a year ago, and liked it so much I got more! It's the same fabric I made this Decades of Style shawl from. And I still have a bit more to dip in to when the next pattern calls out to use it :)
The only thing I don't like about this pattern is the way the neck gets all floppy in your usual drapey knit, after a bit of wearing. So I decided to try some interfacing.
pro-tricot deluxe interfacing, installing it in the neck area.
Here's the neckline once it's folded over: (Note: my previous post, linked above, details all of the construction notes on this T)
You don't want to pull this T over your head when your hairdo is all poufed & sprayed & done up just so.....oh wait....that's never me anyway.... because it is a tad bit tight with the interfacing, but it does give the neckline that extra bit of oomph that keeps it from getting super saggy. I have enough super saggy developing around my neck as it is, I don't need any help from my clothes, thankyouverymuch...
The wearing of the green:
LOVE this fabric - it's super lightweight, and the background is even a little bit sheer, but it's incredibly warm - perfect for the Bay Area temperature variations.
Here's to TNTs! Especially the quick & easy ones :D
When I uploaded the pics for this, I found this shot in my camera. I did not take it. (unless I did so accidentally) It was just there, and it was so intriguing that I had to keep it. It's the light coming through the cut glass window in my front door - it always gives an interesting little light show when the sun shines through.
Hopefully this evening I will start cutting out my snuggly new robe!
