fo: lillian tank

Pattern: Lillian Tank from Delicious Stitches (http://deliciousstitches.blogspot.com/)
Yarn: Knitpicks Comfy in Honeydew, 5.5 skeins
Needles: US 6
Began: June 8, 2008
Finished: July 11, 2008
I made the medium size and it came out just right, I think. I had to redo the ribbing around the neckline as I picked up too many stitches (I was picking up 3 stitches, then skipping a row on the vertical parts) and it was gaping. I had to use dpns for the armhole edging, and that was annoying as there were really too many stitches to keep on the needles, but otherwise, this gave me no problems. This was a very fun and easy knit...it should not have taken me nearly as long as it did, but I haven't been able to stick to one project lately. There are several more cute, free projects on this girl's blog; I recommend checking her out!

You did such a beautiful job on this! So what's your verdict? Is this one that you're going to wear? I vote yes : ) Hopefully will post some pics of FOs soon, but I'm to the edging pattern of our shawl-along...on pause till I know where you are...we can get coffee and finish them up!
