View Full Version : So happy! Finally done... IK Rib and Lace Tank

09-05-2007, 02:40 AM
When I got home this summer, I showed my mom the picture from Interweave Knit's Spring 2007 magazine of the Rib and Lace Tank.. She looked at it and told me I was "ambitious" and she essentially doubted I could knit it seeing as how I just started to teach myself knitting in late January of this year. Well, a month later, I got yarn for it, and now, it's completed! It fits, looks actually mostly decent... and I did it all myself :woohoo: I learned soooo much doing this, and I'm just happy with it...

(Sorry the pictures aren't better... I propped up the camera so I could see in the mirror what it was taking a picture of....)

It looks really, really nice!

Thank you everyone for your wonderful replies!

My mom saw it getting done bit by bit, and when it was finally done and it fit, she was kind of shocked I guess... But not completely surprised, she heard all about progress the whole way through, you know, me figuring out what yet another thing means and how to do it..
