WIP Wednesday - Razor Cami V3

As I mentioned on Monday, I've started my third attempt at the Razor cami. I'm already into the razor shell pattern, and since I've already done it so many times, I could probably knit this one in my sleep! LOL Well, maybe not - but it's fun to try and picture! I got a great deal on 5 balls of Microspun at my local Michael's - just 2$ each! (If I end up using all 5 balls, that'll mean it's a only a 10$ sweater! Just fyi, the Sirdar Snuggly is 4.35$ a ball, so 3 would've only been 13$!)

I keep stitch markers in, just so I know I haven't lost a stitch anywhere. I made these myself with vintage & swarovski crystal beads. The Microspun is particularly splitty, so the markers catch a little. No biggie, I'd rather be satisfied there's not a lost stitch anywhere! I lost 2 on my Squiggle shawl, and I only found one of them! LOL (I picked up this great tip, but I can't remember where; put your pattern in a clear pageholder, and then you can write on it with a dry-erase marker, to keep your place & other notes!)

I'd highly recommend this pattern to any beginner looking for their first sweater pattern. No shaping, and no seaming means it's for knitters of all skill levels! Now I have to decide which pattern I'll work on next, because I can already tell this one won't take very long! (At least compared to other projects of mine!)
