My battery went flat on the camera before I could take a photo of it finished.  Here is a progress photo until I can upload a completed shot.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/8577473@N07/521407478/.  The rib waist is completed in this shot.  Not a good representation of the colour but not too bad.

She is drying on the blocking board at the moment.  I plan to hit her with the iron tonight and hopefully wear tomorrow.  Modelled shots soon.

Hi everyone,

I've uploaded a modelled photo to my flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8577473@N07/523849537/

I wore it last night when we went to the movies so I can now make a few comments about how it works.  First of all, some of the issues I'm going to point out aren't very evident in the photo.

1.  Although I cast on with the larger needles, the scallops at the bottom want to curl.
2.  I don't like the position of the straps.  I think they should be further apart.
3.  If you remember, I cast off on needles a size smaller.  I think it is a bit too tight which may contribute to the above problem.  I will probably undo the bind off and redo it.
4.  Yarn I used was Moda Vera Eleni (55% cotton/45% acrylic).  I don't think it is quite drapy enough.

I would love to do this again but it'll be in a yarn that gives more drape.  Next time I see Summer Tweed on special I might use that (any other suggestions?).  I'll also use a stretchy cast on.  This was the long tail cast on.

All in all, a great fast knit with a really wearable, fun and versatile final garment.

Looking forward to seeing more finished tea roses and hearing other comments.

Yours looks really great!

For the straps I lined up a scallop in the middle of my chest and put the straps on the scallops on either side of the middle one.

I hope to get a picture of mine in action soon.
