So here's my progress so far. I didn't do the provisional cast on. I started with a Jo Sharp DK purple, doubled to make the same gage as the verigated cotton I used a few inches in. I don't know if I have enough of the verigated so I'll probably finish the top with the purple.

No pictures, but I've finished the front straps and am now working on the back. I tried it on and it's really pretty, I just want to make it a little longer, so before I do the hemline I'm going to frog the bottom to above the top purl row and do a few more inches at the bottom, then re-do the k3rnd, p1rnd pattern before I bind off. It should also help me with the yarn join, too, so it's not at the bind off, because that makes me nervous.

My mom thought it was going to look horrible on me before I tried it on. My goal is to finish by 5-26 so I can wear it on 5-27 at my GRADUATION! I'll take a picture of me in it, I'm so excited.

:XX: :XX:

It's done!!!!!
I finished my waterlily tonight. At the moment I'm blocking it to try to get rid of the curl on the bottom, and I have to figure out what to do about the bra sighting, but it's done! w00t!

Yeah! and you look fantastic in it. I'm at the row to start the straps. If I can find my camera I'll post a pic. You are an inspiration!

I finished. Finally. Ya know, this pattern wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The only thing is, I don't like the way it looks on me. It's really fitted and I don't have a curvy body like Hilde. But I'll show y'all a photo of it anyway.

That looks wonderful! After I blocked mine, it got a little less fitted. I also have bodacious boobies that make it a little obcene (oops!) so I'm going to buy some satin to line it with. I just wore mine all through graduation and I think I looked awesome (if a little more exposed than I wanted to be).

My pictures actually inspired my girlfriend to want one in purple, so I have Waterlily back on the needles, this time with Crystal Palace Party yarn.

Thanks for knitting with me!

You both did a FANTASTIC job on these. What a beautiful pattern, and you chose great colors for them. Very flattering.

I've been lurking on this knit along.

Wowie. You both have beatiful work. Can't wait to see the others completed.

How many more will I get to see?

OOOH, I'm late to this knitalong, but I've been lusting after the waterlily tank as soon as I saw it. Colinette prices in the US are the saddest yarn tragedy I can think of, so I put it out of my head until I swapped for 3 skeins on knitty!! YAY

SO I'm halfway through, and have just come to the point where I'm thinking about the bodice---I love the back eyelets, but I'm not crazy about the see throughability of the front, so I think I'm going to skip the front detail, we'll see. I do love how this project taught me that you can shape by lowering your needle size a few times, it's such a great trick, and I can't wait to try it on some other self designed project.
