Cabled Tank

Cabled Tank Top. Made in Caron Simply Soft (to be able to wash it!). Needle sizes 8, 9, 10, 10.5 and 11. *phew*

Pros: This looks MUCH better on than in photos. I couldn't get a good photo of the back without it bunching up from me running to my photo spot before the camera went off. It doesn't generally look so bulky. I think. Also, my skirt is very large, so it kind of billows at my stomache now. I need to go shopping.

Cons: The pattern repeat. I paid for this pattern, so I'm going to bitch. If I had read the pattern (half my fault I guess) I would have noticed that it ends with a p3, and begins with a p3 at the beginning of the next round. If the last 3 stitches were removed, it would have nice EVEN cables around. I opted to put the p6 in the back, and use it as a marker for front vs back. Maybe lace some pretty ribbon in it. Maybe. I'm still kinda peeved.

All in all, I'm looking forward to Cala :)

What I can see of it looks very cool. I think you should absolutely b*tch when a pattern you paid for has a screwed-up thing in it!
