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!

a pile of shit has a thousand eyes.

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.

Someone's been busy!
I really like the cabled raglan, it's very flattering.

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.

The northern downpour sends its love.

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.
