I saw them! It turned out so cute using the stitch that I used on mine. It made it alittle more interesting and cute, hey? :cheering:

Since I'm doing just stockinette for the back, it's taking me forever!

Precious!! Oh, and the tank is cute too! ;) Great job, I really like how it turned out. What length of circular needle did you use? I tried to cast mine on to do it in the round last night, but I think my needle was too long, because I could barely stretch the stitches around to join, so I gave up and cast on the front on straight needles.

The next one that I make will be in the round. I thought of it, but wasn't sure how that would work with the eyelet in the front. :shrug:

Precious!! Oh, and the tank is cute too! ;) :inlove: Isn't she? And it, too! :teehee: Thanks to all for the kind comments on both kid and tank! Great job, I really like how it turned out. What length of circular needle did you use? It was 24 inches from tip to tip. I had to use two of them, one for the tank and one for the ruffle. I tried to cast mine on to do it in the round last night, but I think my needle was too long, because I could barely stretch the stitches around to join, so I gave up and cast on the front on straight needles. I always knit a few rows before I join. Not only is it easier to make sure it's not twisted, but it stretches out the sts and they often fit on the needle better.
I CO the second Monica yesterday and am using Feather and Fan for this one. It's larger and for my older grand daughter. Pics of it on my blog, too.
