hey everyone! so im deffinently a beginner knitter, ive been learning for about a month, but ive had ALOT of time in that month, so i think i wont be too ambitious in taking on the tank girl tank top in Stich n bitch handbook Tongue i will be learning the decreasing as i go... i have practice yarn and more than plenty of time before i will be able to wear this without extra layers (i live in maine Tongue)  anyone was to do this with me!? i started last night, doing the gauge swatch and i cast on and did maybe 4 or 5 rows before it was bedtime for me Tongue

im useing Debbie bliss alpaca silk in a purply color.  it was kind of expensive for 8 skeins of it :S but i figured since im learning (and the best way for me to keep my interest is if im really excited about wearing it) and the lys didnt have any cotton in the right weight that i would just suck it up for now and find out about...less expensive yarns Tongue later on in the year.

anyone interested!? it seems like it will be fairly simple Smiley

Well, try to make a photocopy of the pattern so you can hilight what corresponds to your size.

Such a good idea!   I'm making this right now for the Knitting Olympics and I should've done that.   So far I'm making a tank with medium width and large length.   Oh well, I like longer shirts, so I'm sure it'll work.
