Orangina isn't so Orange



So here is my finished Orangina. It could be a bit longer, but it is cotton and I do expect it to get a bit bigger. Plus, I was lazy. I really do like it, and I think it is flattering. Made out of Anne Circulo, it took a bit more (.1oz) than a full ball to make! SO ya, I have a lot left over that might be a summer bag or something. It did take way too long to knit mind you, almost 7 weeks. Sheesh. I did knit the 2 8" pieces at the same time and then joined them in the round after the armpits. There is a bit of stockinette down the sides but you can't notice it really. It was easier than seaming!

Oh I'm jelous you can finish something so beautiful in 7 weeks!
I really like the way it curves to your body. Did you change any of the shapping in the pattern?

No, it just does that with the curves. Gotta love an easy knit that looks hard. No shaping at all!

Wouldn't it be fantastic if Orangina soda was that color?
