I'm off on a new one - this is the close-fitting tank top from the premiere issue of "Knit It" magazine. I'm making it with cottons bought from Theknitter.com - and so far, only a couple inches into it, I'm happy with the results.

Jenanne,

Your link broke somehow! Could you post your project again? (Inquiring minds want to see!)

Here's a fixed link - sorry 'bout that.

On the downside, I decided after getting 10" into this thing (in the round, yet, so about 1/3 done) that I HATED the fabric. Just hated it.

So I frogged it. *wah*

Now I don't know what I'm gonna do with the yarn, but I think it will involve slip stitches and a children's cardigan possibly.

What didn't you like about it? I am either going to make that sweater or the sweater that is shown in cashmere. (not in cashmere however, I have a t2 year old it is washable only in this household).

I liked the pattern - I'm looking forward to making it later this summer in some cotton/lycra in jet black. The yarn I choose, however, really called for a plain st st or rev st st pattern - this one wasn't working for it. Also, although the gauge was right on target (and the recommended gauge from the yarn label), I think the yarn I was using would have benefitted from being knit at a smaller gauge - it just looked and felt "wrong" somehow to me.
