My blogging is falling behind my knitting! I do want to do the "official" write up of the a-line tank so here it is:
A-line tank from Knit Simple spring/summer 2007, shown near the bottom here.
I knit the medium size, which the pattern said needed 5 skeins but I still had a small amount of the 4th skein left. (What to do with the leftoever skein...)
As I've said, this was a good knit but I didn't fall in love with the yarn. And you had to be careful not to separate out the thin shiny thread, essentially dropping half the stitch - that did happen a bit.
I am in love with the end result! The fabric the yarn creates does feel lovely, and the fit worked well, even if I could possibly have knit the smaller size. I didn't make any pattern adjustments nor was there any need to. I found the binding off at the shoulder/neckline a little confusing but if I did it a bit wrong, I knew it wouldn't matter as I'd be picking up stitches and knitting an edge and could compensate then.
I was very proud of my garter stitch seaming, even if I say so myself.
Overall, I'm really thrilled with how this came out - my first real piece of clothing for myself!
