Tanked!. . .

It's still one of my goals to improve my knitting skills this year and after my disasterous attempts at hats (I am still determined to knit one for this winter though!), I switched to something more summery. It's taken a few months of on-and-off but I finally finished this tank top over the weekend and it actually FITS! The wool is a really lovely colour - sort of peacocky blue. It's CascadeYarns 220 Superwash. The pattern is taken from The Yarn Girls' Guide to Beyond the Basics by Julie Carles and Jordanna Jacobs. This is the first bit of clothing I've ever knitted so I'm feeling quite chuffed and it gives me the confidence to perhaps move on to a sweater. Sleeves are scary though!
