Finishing is done! Unfortunately for you, I am not currently wearing crucial things like makeup or pants, so all you get are the pictures of this being too large on my dressform.









I'm not sure if you can really tell from that last picture, but I basically modified the back by doing the garter stitch short row edging up to the point where i wanted the first strap to attach, worked the instructions for the strap casing bit, did a 3-needle BO for the casing, bound off loosely across the top until I reached the point where I wanted the second strap, knit to the end, then did the short row edging back to the second strap casing, worked the casing, and finished it off with a 3-needle BO.

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

Also, I have a blog at  http://neglectedblog.blogspot.com/

Looks great!  I really need to get started on mine.  Not as motivated since I can't fit it anytime in the next three months (PG), but it would be nice to have something special and hot to wear once I am back to normal size!

Can't wait to see a pic of it on!!!!

Woohoo--  I've finally finished the back of this, and I'm about 4" into the front... so far so good.  Unfortunately the digital camera has taken a trip to Paris without me, so you'll just have to take my word for it for now.  No major problems to report with the back, though I did end up changing the types of decreases used on the top, just because my ssk always looks so different from my k2tog, and they really didn't match.  Forging ahead...

mine almost made it into the permanent ufo bin...sweet fancy moses this thing takes FOREVER!  (i'm only 4 inches in)  or maybe it was the yarn i picked. or it could be that incurable case of finishitisosis i seem to have been stricken with...but juniper, yours looks GREAT!  maybe i'll start working on it again tonight at SNB...or i'll keep working on my opera scarf....or i'll start my quilt.  one can never tell with these things. ;]

juniperl13, you did a bang-up job.  That top's hot!

I'm humbly bowing out of this KAL.  My brain power is currently devoted to a new job (thank God), Orangina, and knitting baby stuff.

But thanks for posting all the pics.  They've inspired me to keep knitting something, even if I don't have the wherewithal for this tank.

I'm enjoying the pattern, but this does seem to take a while!  I worked in this for three hours at my knitting club the other night and felt like I got nowhere!  Anyway, here's some more meager progress...

Anyone still working on this?  I finally got the back piece done.



The triangle shaping was much easier than I thought it would be.  Although I'm not sure that I did the ssp decreases correctly.  But I was so excited to finish the back that I was actually motivated to start the front piece right away!
