First my WIP: ribbed boatneck tank from knit1 green issue:

Which side should be out? I'm inclined to think the back one looks more like the "right" side.

I'm making it in Lion Brand microspun which is much smaller than the yarn the pattern calls for. So I'm knitting a size up. This stuff is so soft! I want more excuses to use it. I hope it doesn't pill (no sign of that so far).

The FO: ribbed lace bolero:

This is my sister's birthday present so I hope she likes it!

It's adorable! Where did you get the pattern? I thought I saw it on Crafster, or something similar recently.

Hi! The thread on the bolero is here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181117.0

There's also a link to the pattern which is a pretty easy lace to work.

Thank you :)

I'm seriously considering making another bolero when the tank top is done. I have enough yarn for one, too!
