Lotus Blossom has bloomed

I have finished my summer project and it's still summer!

Here are some pictures of my completed Lotus Blossom Tank top from Interweave Summer 2006.

I like it quite a bit but the arm holes are a little strange in the way they fit. After a few wears I may add sleeve caps because I think those may work better. The cast off edge is a little tight and rolls in. Other than that I just love my new top!

Adjustments that I made were to knit the stocking stitch section for 7.5" before the arm holes. Also, I used 100% cotton instead of bamboo. I made the top with about 4-5" of negative ease at it is quite stretch and I wanted it to be fitted.

Now on to fall projects....

Tanya, that is gorgeous - the colour really looks good on you! And it is exciting to make something in the right season, isn't it? Mine is coming out to play this week, so we'll see if I can get summer wear out of mine, too...

I love the way this turned out! It is beautiful and looks great on you. I think I might have to add this to my ever growing list of things to knit.
Awesome color & great job!
