I am just a few rows from finishing one side of my tank. Then I do the back armhole decrease, bind off, sew the shoulders and I'm done. I can anticipate finishing in a couple of days. Hooray! Now everybody think happy thoughts so that it fits.

Mer, that's so pretty! Love the color! And I'm very impressed with your Shapely tank, Knitqueen. If I were shapely I might tackle the short row concept. It seems kinda intimidating, right now.

The short row thing is hard to get your mind around before you actually do it, but once you do it a few times it's like one of those "Ooooooooooohhhhhhh, that makes so much sense" lightbulb type moments.

And thanks for the compliments on my tank! I'm finding that it really pays to follow the pattern precisely when in doubt!!

Pictures! Very little progress since I'm working on dd1's shrug. My goal is to finish the tank by the 16th, so that I can wear it to a dinner at the lake. The shrug has to be done by the 19th, for dd1's confirmation. Photos of the shrug are in my blog thread.

In pic #1, the side is about 2" from completion.

In pic #2, the stitches are on the yellow yarn holder, waiting for decreasing.

Ooooooo...very pretty, Sarah.

What pattern is it? The yarn is very pretty, too.

I need to get moving...summer will be over before I finish a tank.
