Sweater as promised…

I did promise y’all a photo of the finished “Shapely Tank.” Well, here you go. First time ever trying to take a photo of myself in a mirror. Taken about a month and a half and 20 pounds ago! So now there is actually a full inch of ease in it. Still the nicest top I’ve ever knit, though. And *I* look better!

Knit on size six needles with KnitPicks Shine yarn. I love this stuff. And it really DOES wash well!

Anyway. On to the bad picture!

I think when I knit it again I’ll make a couple of changes: First, despite the called-for amount of garter stitch edging, the hem rolls. I’ll double it at least. It’s not a big deal right now, but I could see it being a problem in a silk top intended for something other than my casual office.

I’ll add a half-inch to the armhole depth . Although I like the fact that they come up higher than most, they just aren’t quite deep enough to be comfortable for me. That extra half-inch should solve the problem.

Highly recommended. On me it doesn’t look very good with more than an inch of ease. Your mileage may vary.
