She once was Rose, now...she's Soleil
:D I had every intention of making Rose (Soleil with sleeves, can be found @ for my sister...but, I did something wrong with the sleeves and they were a bit too large. I looked back over the pattern I saw my mistake, but, I just didn't want to knit another set of sleeves (yeah, hanging my head). So, I turned her into Soleil. Soleil is my first adult garment. I've been too busy with socks to knit grown up clothing It was fun, I was a bit askeeered about the crocheted edge, but it was easy and fun after I practiced :D All details are on my baby blog.
Now...I'm off to begin knitting the "summer ensemble" for my granddaughter for the World Knitting, sign ups end Monday if anyone is interested in joining

That is gorgeous! I've been looking for tank pattern and I think I want to do that one!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

hehe, oh my! first, it looks beautiful, so mistake or not... great job! secondly, we have all done it and sleeves are a stinker to begin with so taking on the challenge of making them again would make anyone cringe!

It looks great! I'm about 10 inches into my Soleil in Rosetta and am now wishing I'd ordered that blue. This gives me an excuse to try my hand at Rose when I'm done.

Great work!
