Oh and about the cute tank top that Julie posted--is it that it's such a cute tank or such a damned cute little girl?!?
Thanks, m.s. ...

I had a copy of SNB from the library a while back, but never got a chance to read much of it. I'll grab it again. And after bragging about Knitting for Dummies on another thread, I guess I could go whip it out & see if there are instructions in there!! Sheesh!

And, yes, that little girl looks like she was made to model. What a cutie patootie!

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you! Thank you!
How about this or this?

Square --

Cute! Thank you. I had seen the one @ Knitty and bookmarked it, but the other one is new to me, and looks great, too.

Thanks so much!

Well, through my journies tonight, I've run across another cute tank pattern for little girls -- unfortunately *too* little for mine. But, perhaps one of you other mommies out there can use this.
