Lotus Blossom Tank

Well, here it is, the Lotus Blossom Tank. It curves in the front because my shoulders are too narrow. The seam on the left looks like crap because something got twisted in the process. The colors aren't really my cup of tea. It's actually not uneven in the front, though. It just looks uneven because I tugged on it before I put it on.
Other than that, this top actually looks kind of neat. The lace is very pretty, and the colors look interesting. I'll wear it, but it's not my usual style. Maybe with a cute jacket...


And here is my latest WIP, the Samantha baby sweater dress by Kate Gilbert. The part with the YO's is going to get folded under, and then there's going to be this cute picot-like edging on the bottom.
This is a surprise gift for a friend of ours who just recently had a baby. I haven't actually seen the child, so I hope it fits!

This pattern didn't catch my eye in IK, but the more I see it knitted the more I think how nice it is. You've done a beautiful job and it looks lovely on.

Yay! It looks pretty on you! I hear about too much torso showing thru on the lace section. :)

Ooooh, Samantha! I bought the pattern, but I still need to knit it up for my younger one. I look forward to seeing how yours turns out.

Thank you! I think it will look much better with a shirt under it. Now I'm thinking of making a darker one to wear as a vest over a black long-sleeved sweater. Or maybe a green one, in honor of the alien heads...
This really was a fun knit.

More pictures of Samantha will be coming up as I knit. So far, it's rolling like there's no tomorrow!
