Hi. *waves* First FO post here.

First up, my latest (that I have pictures of) Coachella:





I knit this in about four days using SWTC Bamboo in Electric Blue, double stranded. It only used just over two balls! I really do love it, I just wish I'd skipped the short rows so it wasn't so indecent. At some point I'm going to knit a matching piece of lace or something so I don't have to wear a tank underneath. I would have ripped it out except I really wanted to wear it to the Hanson concert I was taking my nephew to that weekend. (He's nine and it was his first concert. He had a ball)

Next up, my self designed cable raglan tank (I really need a better name) :







I cast on with an idea and winged it. I've had a little interest for the pattern, so I'm trying to write one up that makes sense. I used about 3 1/2 balls of Cotton Ease in Popsicle Blue (I believe).

Last, a simple striped raglan out of leftover yarn:



Let me know what you guys think! I'll have been knitting for two years in October... Smiley

these are great and looks so cute on you!  i especially like the second one!  i love how the cables go down the side, its subtle and cute (i'm not one for the huge chunky cables down the front of stuff).  great job, if you do a pattern for it i would love to test it!

they all look so great! i like how you wear a tanktop under coachella, i'm gonna try that when i get around to making it. i love the how the back is made but i hate not wearing a bra...and my strapless bra only works if i ducttape it to my body lol.

hanson concert lol i forgot all about them!  Cheesy ah, 5th grade memories!

I really like your cabled raglan  Shocked!

I also think the tank top adds a layer of interest to the cochella, rather than just the cochella being against the skin alone. I think if I ever get around to making the cochella top, I'll just get some cute tank tops to wear underneath. Thanks for the idea.

I like them all!  And I love the idea about knitting a lace piece for the Coachella.  Sounds like a very elegant solution!

I love the blue that you've used for your Coachella.

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.

Nice.  I really like the cable raglan.  I'm usually not a fan of cabled sweaters, but having them over to the side is nice and subtle.
