Hello Everybody,

I posted a few months ago asking, essentially, how to purl (thanks your your help, btw). Now I have made this and am really happy with it. The picture is clickable. Never mind my twisted up mouth; I was eating a potato chip at the time. :)

And I love the yarn. This was made from just one skein of it. It's really pretty and pleasant to work with.

Very pretty! My DD would love it, so I better hide the pic from her! LOL

And you just learned to purl? I'm impressed.

Thanks everybody! :D

Oh, right, the pattern! I used this pattern
http://www.yarnmarket.com/yarn/Artyarns_Free-Lacy_Silk_Tank_Top_Free-1981.html
But I had to modify a lot because I used a different yarn. So I went down a needle size, decreased the number of stitches (I don't know if I decreased improperly or if it's just the pattern, but I needed to end with K2 or row 3 of the lace pattern), and also because I wanted a less bulky look I started the neckline sooner and narrowed the straps a bit. But it's essentially that pattern.

That is gorgeous and looks perfect on you, too. But then again, with a figure like that, I'm sure most things do. ;)
