FO: Lotus Blossom Lace Tank
My recently finished project, that i knitted with birthday yarn. It took me a month (along with other projects).

Pattern: Lotus Blossom Tank by Sharon Shoji.
Needles: 3.75mm and 3.50 mm.
Yarn: Gong by Ornaghi Filati.
Size: 39" (my bust is 36")

I've used finer yarn than required, thus i went down a needle size to create a good looking fabric and also knitted a bigger size, which eventually made a perfect match. The yarn is delicious! It's Italian spun Egyptian mercerized cotton, with many fine plies. It's much better than the cottons i found in Jerusalem LYS's. That one was bought in Haifa. The store carries it in so many amazing colors i had to hold my hands behind my back to resist it all It has beautiful sheen and this particular color is dark olive green.
I hope you like it

Yours looks soooo much better than mine! You look just GREAT!

My gauge was ALL OFF big-time, and I have to wear mine with a shirt or blouse, kind of like a vest. I still don't know what I did wrong. Well...wrong "GAUGE" I guess!
