Great tank top, and the yarn is super-discounted! Thank bob for KP gift cards so I can order right away!

Simplyme5252, Hufflepuff first year, made this.

2x2 rib at the bottom, because rolled cuffs drive me mad. Or maybe garter?

26/1/11 - Started; Did one round of decreases at the upper part of the arms. I’m going through yarn fairly quickly, so I really hope my yarn calculations are right, because otherwise I’m going to have to frog the swatch and use the yarn.

27/1/11 - Almost done with the upper front section. Not doing bust shaping (small boobs FTW). Sort of tried it on, a little concerned that the neckline in front is going to be too low.

28/1/11 - Tried on. Way too big. Frogged. Went down two sizes and casted on again…

29/1/11 - Beasted it out today. In the middle of the increases at the end of the shaping (why yes, I knit through 330 yards today, but it was so worth it for the Doctor Who 4th season finale. SO. FREAKING. GOOD.)

30/1/11 - Darn you Netflix for making Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead, not available for streaming today, the day I wanted to watch it (seriously, it was available yesterday. Grr…). Anyway, finished. Ended up going with 2” of 2x2 rib at the bottom on the larger needles (for hip allowance), and JSSBO. The back rides up a bit (annoying, but should have thought of that after I read other people’s project notes and made the back strap-thing longer), and it hugs the skin, but it looks good (needs to be blocked though). Tried doing a slip-stitch edging around the arm holes, but it just made them really tight, and didn’t add much aesthetically.
