The Onde tank is complete. Here I am in the usual pose-y shot:
And here's the one I like better--all wind swept and everything.
I rather like this tank, except for one thing. I can't find an armhole finish I like. Right now the edges are unfinished, but they roll so much my bra strap shows sometimes. I tried a few things last night and the made the tank too small under the arms. I might try a single crochet (which I did at the neck) and see if that works. Or, since it's mostly acrylic, I might take the iron to it to try to kill the stitches a bit (I believe that's the correct term) and make them stay put. The bottom 3X1 rib curls a bit too, so I might try that there as well. Today is perfect tank weather too. It's under 20C outside so I'm not cooking in this thing.
And, the booga bag has been felted and is drying. It took less than two wash cycles to felt the kureyon--a record for me. This time I threw in a couple of towels which may have helped. It looks great though and will be the perfect gift when stuffed with some sock yarn and needles. A little sock-starter kit for a knitter friend of mine who shall go nameless because I know she reads this occasionally.
Sam is also progressing. I'm almost done the second sleeve and this will be my car knitting over the weekend. The baby is coming Thursday and I would like to have it when I visit Mom and babe in the hospital on the weekend.
With the weather turning I'm starting to think Fall knitting (even though it should/better get hot again). So, I'm off to order the Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton Book Two and join the Klaralund-along. I have the Silk Garden in my stash already and it's nice to find a lovely pattern to use it for.
