She rocks in the tree top all day long…

Here she is:

Robin

Robin
Pattern: Essential Tank Top, Lace Style
Yarn: Koigu, Robin Blue, 5 skeins
Needles: Addis, size 4, 32 inch
Mods: Knitted in the round, instead of flat (no seaming!). Also instead of using a crochet stitch for the spaghetti straps, I used I-cord.

I wish I had made this a little longer. I have almost 3 skeins left, so if I get inspired one day I can frog back to the armholes. This was a fast and easy knit. The lace pattern is easy to memorize. I would make this again using a different lace pattern.

Whooo-Hooooo, (or the sound that is a wolf whistle - how would you spell that??)

Looks fab!!! Well done :o)

Now, when you bought the yarn you were a bit short, right and had to buy more - was it three extra balls you bought?? (or am I just completely talking out of my bum? - it is almost my bedtime!!)

Nighty night ;o)

GORGEOUS!!

it looks great with that green under it! If you layer it, i don't think you need it to be longer...just my little 2 cents.
