Finished.

For starters, thank you so much for all of congratulatory comments. It was so nice.

I have some knitting news to report. I finished Calla. Here she is.

Not the best picture, or at least not the most flattering. But there she is. I didn't make many changes, but my gauge was a little off creating a, shall we say, snug fit. However, this is probably my best mattress stitch seaming to date. So, all in all, I'm pleased with the result. I had planned to wear it next weekend at Rykert's graduation, but I'm not sure if the weather will be warm enough.

I need to start something new tonight so that I'll have something portable to take to work in the morning...

that turned out great and it looks like it fits perfect.

don't you love the process of picking your next project? can't wait to see what you cast on!

Hey! It looks great! I love the pink. After finishing the pattern, what would you say about people who are in between bust size? Better a little snug or better a little loose? I'm afraid the waist would be to baggy going with the larger size.

Looks like a perfect fit to me. Very pretty! Hope the weather warms up so you can wear it.

I think it looks perfect -- not too snug at all. Seriously, who wants baggy and droopy summer tanks? No one. It's a definate winner.

Melissa said...

So cute - and I agree with the others - it fits great!

BAM said...

Looks great, love the color...and the fit!

It looks fantastic! Are you wearing something under it or did you line it somehow so the lace pattern doesn't show your bra? I liked this pattern a lot, but was a little leary about that part.

You look so hot in this it won't matter WHAT the temperature is - you just have to wear it to his graduation. God knows I better never get skinny like that or I'd be giving my husband all kinda headaches. heh

That is very pretty! I like the color and the pattern.

I came across your blog, and had to comment on your "Calla". It is great! The color, the fit, the pattern. I have that cotton yarn in about 6 different colors in my stash, however, I only have 1 or 2 skeins of each. How many skeins did you use? This is a project on my "to do" list!
