Ta da!

A pink cami a la landry. Smiley




Before I had even begun the decreases on the top, my sister was asking, "Can I have one?"  Roll Eyes  She's paying for the yarn. Sky blue. Casting on again....

Used 5 balls (last one partial) of Bernat Cashmere Natural Blends (ironically 95% synthetic).  I know: I'm small.

yay, knittinfiasco! another completed one!
I like that you lengthened the top to suit your body type.
How long do you think yours is in total?



Here's pics from yesterday before I bound off the front. I think all the exra decreases I did in the beginning are paying off. 'pologize for the crappy isight shots.

knittinfiasco, it came out awesome!  Smiley I'm so jealous. tragicheroine recommended I frog back to where I ended the decreases and decrease some more so I go into negative ease, which should hopefully hold up better.

steezah - yeah, this project definitely benefits from extra decreases! The fit looks lovely so far on you.

wip update:

I finished the short rows and front piece last night. Purl-side wrap pick ups are a pain but manageable. I used JMM's Shapely Tank as a reference guide for cup sizes. I followed directions for a C but after placing it against my girls I think I might have been better off going for a D.

Who knows, with what wonders blocking will do...


So thats where I'm at. Who else is still chipping away?

Almost finished with my sister's cami in KnitPicks' Wool of the Andes, color: Chambray.  She's small like me, and hasn't tried it on, but it's taken 4 skeins plus a ridiculously little bit from the 5th to make the last strap--so close!

Yay! I finally got it right this time. Thanks, tragicheroine, for the tips you gave me on Ravelry.
