FO-something for me
So I finally have a FO for me for once that is a wearable. To be honest other than hats and maybe a poncho or two I have never made myself a wearable. Partially because I am a big girl and I have knitting ADD and get bored of the same thing over and over. So I was gifted a bunch of yarn from my co-worker and some of it was 100% cotton in a sport weight. I made myself a tank top this one to be exact--> http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=3162 you need to be a member to see the pattern but it is free to sign up. It was an easy pattern and something to do on almost every row so it held my interest. Here are a few pics of the tank top. One is the top sitting on my couch, tried to get a close up of the pattern on the bottom of the tank and then one of me wearing it. I hate pics of myself I never take good ones.

Nice stitch pattern. I'm with you; I get bored with larger projects. That's why it's taking me 5 plus months to finish a top-down sweater in the round.
