FO: Make Up Your Mind


 Hark! A finished tank! This was my original project for the Very Shannon TTTKAL, and after my brief affair with the Tallahassee Crop Top, it pretty much flew off the needles. I alternated two skeins of Colinette Jitterbug, but I still have 134g (almost half the yarn!) left over (oh well, I guess I'll have to knit a pink crop top, woe is me). I knit this pretty much as written-I did fudge some length  in the upper fronts/back so the armholes and neckline wouldn't be too deep, but otherwise I didn't mess around with it.


I'm so glad to have finally gotten around to this top-I've had it in my queue for years. I had just a little trouble with two of the stitch patterns-the linen rib and Hindu pillar stitch were a bit fiddly for my taste, but fortunately that made me power through them to get to something I enjoyed more, so it all worked out okay. Ultimately I love the stitches in this top, so I'm glad I powered through them and didn't try to sub out for something else.

  3. Amazing!!!! It looks so good on you, and the fit is awesome. Well done on adjusting for the armhole not to be too deep, as well. Hindu pillar stitch is a serious pain, but it looks so good and hits at just the right spot under the bust.
