Here is a basic tank top with lace bottom that I made from a pattern on Knitty.com. It is done in the round, so no side seaming (yay!) which makes it a pretty easy and quick knit.

The yarn is 100% silk that I got at a wholesaler that opens to the public once a month. It was $45 for 1.9 POUNDS!

This is also the first garment I've made for myself that actually fits reasonably well...If I did it again I'd make the armhole a tad roomier, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with it!

GEORGEOUS!! I've been looking for a tank pattern done in the round for me to try for my first garment. Someone else had posted this pattern for me, but the color shown turned me off. Seeing your pic sealed the deal! I'm on my way to go order yarn for this. TY and Great Work!!

Well, you just answered the question I just posted. :happydance: I found Soleil in Elann, but wasn't sure it was the same as Knitty was calling for. Thank you!!!! :)

Thank goodness my dh is deployed - now I can feed the yarn addiction without complaint. :rofling:
