WIP - DROPS designs tank
I'm working on this tank from DROPS designs. I am making it in Knitpicks Shine Sport 'Green Apple'. This is what I have so far. It is becoming monotonous so I'm glad that I'm about 3/4 of the way through the body part before dividing for the armholes, and I've decided (with the help of some of you on a different thread) to add some short rows for the bust. I'm kinda a size small but with a not so small bust, so I'm going to be adventurous and try it out. I've been freaking out about running out of yarn - I only have 5 balls - so yesterday I just bit the bullet and ordered 3 more balls so I'm sure to have enough, especially since I'm adding the short rows and would like the make the whole thing a tad longer than the pattern says. I'm not exactly interested in showing off my post-two babies belly .

Here it is :XX:

P.S. I find it really kinda odd that on the picture shown with the pattern, you can't see those mini cables AT ALL :thinking:

Beautiful so far - I'm in love with that color! I hope the modifications work out for you. I always worry about not having enough yarn - and then I end up with way to much!

It is beautiful. Yeah, it is odd that the pattern pic doesn't show the cables. They're a really nice adornment.

Thanks SJ. I'm preeeetty sure I would have run out of yarn with what I had, considering it's going to take at least 3 balls of yarn just to complete the body part, that would only leave me 1 ball for the back and 1 ball for the front plus the straps, and I wouldn't be able to lengthen it at all. I didn't want to cut it that close! Now I can just knit on my merry way and wait for my extra 3 balls to arrive!

Thanks. The two little cables that go up the front run right up across the boobs to the top of the front piece. I hope it doesn't focus too much attention "there".

That is just beautiful! Did you add the design yourself? It doesn't look like the pattern has one, but the photo isn't nearly as good as yours for detail. You're doing a great job on it!

ETA: Never mind you explained the cables not showing on the pattern.
