I just flew by the seat of my pants with this one.  I'd mastered my kids seamless sweaters, but as I found out, adults are shaped just a bit differently then kids Wink

here's the finished product, which I'm not sure is actually finished.  I might change the neckline to make it lower, or more open.  I feel kinda like a nun in this Wink

I haven't worn it out of the house yet cuz I'm afraid it looks like a silly homemade shirt and that's not what I'm aiming for Wink

Anyway, here she is:



Yarn is recycled cotton Smiley

And you can see day-by-day progress on my blog here:  http://soulfulhuesknits.blogspot.com/2008/01/watch-me-knit-shirt.html

Thanks for lookign everyone, and if you have any suggestion on how to fix the neck, I'd be MORE then happy to hear them!

I dont have any suggestions but I just want to say I think this looks great!
Not at all like a homemade top, more like something from a specialist boutique, making one offs.
 Theres one locally, I cant think of the name right now, but they make organic original peices and this would fit right in there, if you added a huge price tag.
(thats what I think anyhow)

I love that top.  The colors look so pretty on you.  I know you aren't super thrilled with the neckline but maybe you can take out a row or two.

Very cute.  I think that the top would be less "nunlike" if you frogged it an inch and a half, just a leetle lower down on your neck.  I love the colors, and I hope you wear it all the time when spring hits.  This will be perfect!

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

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.
