bubblegirl - I'm on the stockinette portion of my lelah now.. I missed a yarn over really early on too! I couldn't be bothered to rip back  because the stitch definition in my yarn isn't that obvious, so I wasn't going crazy over it. But yeah, if it bothers you a lot, rip it out! Or you may never end up wearing it just cos of a yarn over that's missing (and it's too nice of a tanktop not to wear!)

I wish they sold cotton ease here, it looks so pretty!

Here's my finished lelah! It's a bit loose at the top, I think I need to tighten the elastic more.. But not too discouraging for my second wearable garment, didn't have to rip it out at least Smiley

i dig all the lelahs. what a great pattern. i have it cued up in my to-do list but i wanted to get some practice in first (i haven't knitted in awhile).

so i am currently restarting sexie from stitch n bitch. i screwed up my stitch count the first time and ended up with this line of accents that stumbled all over the front of the shirt.

i have a two-week roadtrip with the ladies in my family coming up, i am hoping to get it done then!

b1znatch - er hehe it's actually acrylic yarn.. I've no idea how much I'll sweat in it when summer comes around (it's winter here in australia, and i'm knitting tank tops  Smiley ) anyway it was about a DK weight, so I used size 8 needles for the lace and size 6 for the stockinette part, and I did 14 or 15 repeats of the lace so that it would go up to my hips. It was really quick! Maybe I'll make another one if I could get my hands on some nice cotton.. I feel like I want one in every colour now  Cheesy

Once I noticed my "mistake" I really slowed down on the knitting but after your encouragement I picked back up my Lillian Tank, went back a few more rows than I originally thought I had to and fixed it. Now I'm on the top stockinette portion back. Hopefully finish tomorrow or something. I've never made anything that you can actually wear so I'm not too sure how this whole back/front picking up stitches (nicely) and adding ribbing business works - lol - we shall seee...
