So... do you like my new tank top?
I am fairly pleased with this so far, I think.
The misgivings: I am worried it is a little bit too tight - I followed the instructions in the pattern to round down the bust measurement, but really I think it wouldn't have been too bad if I'd rounded up (my measurement came out, as usual, squarely between two sizes), that said it might grow a bit when it is blocked and it doesn't look too bad. All will be revealed, in the time honoured and mystical way of knitting, I guess. My other misgiving is the ribbing - I don't know what I've done to it but the first three rows after the cast on look awful, the rest of the ribbing looks very neat and tidy though - it will bug me if I leave it how it is, so I think when I have done the sleeves I will undo all the ribbing and knit it back on again in the opposite direction. I hope this is a jumper which I really am going to wear so I'm sure it will be worth the effort.
Maybe tonight I will manage to cast on a sleeve...
