My recently finished project, that i knitted with birthday yarn. It took me a month (along with other projects).

Pattern: Lotus Blossom Tank (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lotus-blossom-tank) by Sharon Shoji.
Needles: 3.75mm and 3.50 mm.
Yarn: Gong by Ornaghi Filati (http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/ornaghi-filati-gong).
Size: 39" (my bust is 36")

I've used finer yarn than required, thus i went down a needle size to create a good looking fabric and also knitted a bigger size, which eventually made a perfect match. The yarn is delicious! It's Italian spun Egyptian mercerized cotton, with many fine plies. It's much better than the cottons i found in Jerusalem LYS's. That one was bought in Haifa. The store carries it in so many amazing colors i had to hold my hands behind my back to resist it all:teehee: It has beautiful sheen and this particular color is dark olive green.
I hope you like it:thumbsup:

Yours looks soooo much better than mine! You look just GREAT!

My gauge was ALL OFF big-time, and I have to wear mine with a shirt or blouse, kind of like a vest. I still don't know what I did wrong. Well...wrong "GAUGE" I guess!

Thank you for your compliments :hug:! I'm glad you liked it. I really enjoy wearing it, though i don't think i'll wear it in the mornings when it's very hot.

Thank you, girls!

It's a very fun knit, just take into consideration my mods - i used thinner yarn than called for, because it's so hot here i couldn't have worn anything thicker than that.
