My Ravelry notes (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/banana-tree-cardigan)

I got it done in time for the wedding on Saturday! Attached the i-cord straps (camisole) at 1pm...and we left at 2:30!

BTW: it was a perfect fit! The cami has gold 'thread elastic' running inside the top edge to keep it close to my upper chest.

Haven't had time to do a "modeling" photo shoot...but here is the twinset:

I always love opening your FO posts. I know I'll be envious every time.

This set is gorgeous!
Makes me wonder if anyone noticed what the bride was wearing.:teehee:

Gee, I always thought finishing an outfit within minutes of leaving for an event was standard protocol.

How long did it take you to do?!!

Well, I cast on December 6th, and finished both pieces on January 22...so that's about 7 weeks...but take away 1 week with grandchildren visiting (couldn't watch movies with them and work on this project), and take away 2 weeks sick with outrageous Flu Virus! (didn't hardly knit at all). So I guess it took about 4 weeks...but truth be told, more like 3 because I worked on other projects at the same time. I hate to get off track like that! Seems like nothing ever gets done!

My 2011 GOAL is to have only one WIP at a time! :happydance:

But first I have three 2010 WIPS to finish up! :eyes:
