I've got another beautiful project, which is on my wish-list:  Aleita Shell by Bonne Marie Burns. I think, it's an easy and fast knit, right for the new spring. I want to use my 9 skeins of Bambou Soft (Austermann) and I hope that's enough. But I have to make a gauge first. Is anyone interested in knitting this tank, too?

Oooh, I just finished this! A link to my post is here, if you're interested. I hugely enjoyed knitting it, and I'd have thought 9 skeins of the Bambou Soft was easily enough - I only used just over 500 yards (admittedly for the smallest size), and that was of a slightly finer-weight yarn.

Can't wait to see pictures!

(Edited to correct my curious inability to spell one-letter words...)

Oh! I just cast on for this a few days ago! I'm taking the big leap away from hats, gloves, scarves, and socks to start on an actual *garment.* I'm pretty nervous about it, but I'm crossing my fingers that it will turn out ok!

It will be, of cause! Don't worry!

Yesterday evening I started with enthusiasm: I knitted one skein up. Nice yarn this Bambou Soft by Austermann: very soft, shiny, on metal needles a little bit slippery to knit with, but this doesn't matter to me, because I can check my tension between sometimes boring right stitches (Good for me, there was Dr. House on TV.). This yarn is 3-plied and each strand has a silky feeling. But enough from that advertising.
I'm eager to see your tanks and if I can manage mine with my nine skeins. ( If you could find mistakes (holymoly you can!)- you can keep them  Wink.)

Another evening, another skein. I left the first dec and the first inc out, also I had not used the smaller circular needle ( twin-belly and 10 kg to much weight) at the beginning. I'm thinking about a second shell in cotton-viscose blend in lilac. Yes, I know, that's pretty much to early to say...

So, now I have to divide for the front overlap and to find my second circular.
Also I have to solve a problem with the following waist increases. I'm not understanding what they mean with: increase at waist every 6th row once (10th row after last waist increase), then every 10th row once.  Huh What I have to do now?

I looked the model under her right arm and decided, to go on as before: increase in the 10th row and this two times again, but i will change the increases into left stitches.

Yesterday evening I divided for the fronts and the back. Now I'm going to knit both fronts at the same time (with two skeins of cause).
