I FINALLY finished my Razor Cami by ohmystars! Smiley Hooray!

I started it on the 1st April, and finished today, the 13th of April. I used a bamboo/cotton blend, but in hindsight it would have been wiser to use a more stretchy yarn - especially when thinking of the straps and the ribbing on the back. It's not ugly per se, it just could've been more elastic. I wasn't able to sew the sides together (luckily it doesn't show!); if I had, no way I could've gotten it over my head!



Excuse the expression, I was really tired. Cheesy Oh, and I am aware that my bra is showing. I never got around to taking a full picture with a white top underneath.. Bear with my pale skin! (and yes, that is our dryer behind me.)

I also added some ribbons under the straps. They're crooked as all hell. I crocheted the straps, adding a golden thread, to give it a little extra oomph. Fastening all the loose ends was a b*tch, so I'm really glad it's done. Wink There is just no way to properly secure ends with yarn that is so smooth, except if you sew them down with thread. Which I did with some of them. It took a loooong time.



Yeah, my boobs really aren't that big. Wish they were, though. Wink
Despite the bit tight front and back, I'm very pleased with the outcome! More pictures on my blog. Details as well, but, well, it's in Danish. Tongue Give it a go if you feel brave, though!

Thanks to Fortune_32 for all her help!! Smiley

That color is nice and you did a great job.  I think all you really need is a strapless bra to match the color of your top.

Rock it how you want.  It looks awesome!!

I'm making this too at the moment out of Debbie Bliss Cathay, and I'm at the 12 inch mark now, but it seems to be dragging a LOT.  I need some good dvds to watch and just sit down and finish it.  I love the colour of yours: it's so springy and fresh!  Did you divide the stitches in half for the front/back or did you use less at the front?

ps my boobs really are that big!  It's not as much fun as you'd think  Wink

alicepalace - I divided the stitches so I had 6 rep. + 1 knit st. for the front, and the rest + 1 inc. st. at the back. Smiley That fits me pretty well - I'm a 33" bust, if that helps.
I watched TV while knitting this as well; it's really good for mindless knitting, I think. But yeah, it really does just go on and on and on and on... Until you've suddenly knit 40"! Cheesy

Nice work! I love the color you made it in. I started making my razor cami 2 days ago. I hope mine comes out as nice as yours  Grin

Um, you're reeeally not pale as far as I can see! I don't even tan. Although I like it, so whatever.
But as for the knitting - it looks great! I really have to make one of those.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Ack, I just took a close look at the picture - I'm no way as tan in real life! Must've happened when I messed with the lighting to show off the colour better.. Cheesy I don't tan well either; I just go from pale to lobster red to pale again! Wink
