Finally done! I sure procrastinated seaming those two itsy bitsy shoulder seams...seeing how the cami was knit in the round...seaming took 10 minutes. Oy vey!

Yarn: Silky Wool (650yds)
Color: Coffee Bean
My Rav notes (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/tank-of-many-colors-2) if you care to look.
Free pattern, (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tank-of-many-colors) but I tweaked it. Used the pattern for an outline mainly.

Intended use: paired with my Noro Bettna cardigan.

DID SOMEONE SAY COFFEE???
Excuse me while I put another cup to brew.

It's beautiful! A perfect pairing.

The yarn sounds scrumptious in hand.

Silky Wool is the nicest wool in the world to wear next to the skin. It provides warmth, but not insufferable heat. I mean, it doesn't suffocate. So worn under my Bettna, I'll be very comfortable!

Noro's "Maiko" has the same attributes as Silky Wool. A tad warmer though. And less colors to chose from. And more expensive.

You can pick up Silky Wool for a great price. And it has nearly 200 yards per hank. Very generous yardage IMO.

Another beautiful project completed. One of the many things I admire about your knitting is the combination of choosing the right yarn and color for the pattern. Your finished knits look much, much better than the original pattern. It's a wonderful gift you have Dollyce! :notworthy:



Happy knitting.....................:knitting:
