Your lace work is very good, and the color is so pretty! Can't wait to see the finished product!

As it happens, I just finished this tank top tonight. I will block it tomorrow and then post a photo. It's rather form-fitting, so I'm glad I've lost a little weight. Five more pounds and it'll look even better.

(Like I said, I need to lose a few lbs. for this top to look its best.)



This edging is so pretty, I'll probably use it again on other tops and maybe on sock cuffs.

It looks gorgeous on you and the knitting is perfect. It's those little details that really make the overall look just right. Enjoy wearing it!

Beautiful! Just beautiful! That edging is nice. What's it called, do you know?

Thanks! The edging itself doesn't have a name other than the generic description picot hem, I think. You just do a picot turning row (k2tog, yo all the way across), with a couple of rows of stockinette before and after, BO, fold along the picot row, and stitch down the bound off edge.

Cool. I thought it would be more complicated than that. I did a picot hat brim so - bonus! - I already know how! Thanks!
