New yarn on it's way to being a tank top

So on a recent trip to the yarn store that was supposed to be just to visit with The Betties and hang out, I found myself wanting to get something. Shocking. Debbie convinced me to get this Araucania Pomaire Multi yarn (100% cotton, color 17) and I immediately decided it was to become a tank top for me. I've never worn the Razor Cami I made so I really want to make something awesome and actually wear it.

After much deliberation, I cast on for THIS tank top late night July 2nd and hoped I would have enough yarn for it (3 hanks). It's a little splitty but not bad to work with at all.

Well...I finished the back piece last night and didn't even use up a whole skein! Did I mention I love this yarn? So soft, such a pretty colorway, and totally wearable. I've named it Summer Nights Tank Top as I am hoping to finish and wear it soon. I really liked doing the armhole shaping and decreases, two new skills for me. I feel like my knitting is getting better and my stitches more even.

I'll post my mods to the pattern when it's all said and done. Yes I know, I always say that, but this time I really want to since I can see myself making this one again.

Love the tank!!

The yarn looks even better knitted up than in the ball.

Are you gonna model when you're done?

Loved the little dress too.

Kiss kiss
