Some changes were made to this.
It was actually a tank/cami, but I prefer halters - so... I changed it.
And then it also had thinner straps, but I prefer a slightly thicker one...
And I also prefer a snug fit, for those days out in the sun especially.
Behold the razor halter!
The pattern is available here.
This top is knitted from Phildar Coton yarn in color 'Atoll' with my favorite Clover needles.

As promised yesterday - pictures of my Razor Tank so far.
And I'm wondering if I should make it a halterneck top instead? hmmm...

Pictures tomorrow :)
I am considering changing it into a halter neck which I would prefer ... But still in the works.
This is quite exciting!
(and I think I might have more Phildar left than expected! So I'm quite sure I can make something else! :D)

Thankfully I didn't really.
I just bought a few things.
like more Clover stuff
and here's a look at the baby yarn I've got a few days ago to prepare making the baby gift for a friend.
My lace yarn has arrived too after the meet up over the weekend. I can't wait to get started of course, but then I need to finish more things before I do. So let's hope i don't cast this on so soon. (Well I guess I need more things like more beaded markers, a good needle, etc etc etc)
MLC also gave away these beautiful Mohair. I haven't decided what to do with them but I love the colors so much. It reminds me of Amy from Evanescence. hehehe
So yes, a truly fruitful weekend coupled with doggy outings and POTO!

But then again, I've been making good progress recently. Maybe it's because I'm starting to get the hang of it in the recent months. I know I started knitting away some years back but I never really put my heart into it until the last 8 months or so.
So, Here I present my favorite WIP as of today! It's my Razor Tank!
And today it stands at 20 repeats (actually 22)
It's my favorite wip so far because firstly, it's my first project working in the round, and I find it so much fun and so much easier! Secondly, it's made with all my favorite things - namely, Phildar! (Coton Micro fibres) from Lyon(!! my favorite place), with Clover aluminium needles! I also have my Clover row counter and stitch marker with this wip!
Of all the projects I have in my bag now, this is the only one that's for me. And in fact, this is the first wearable project I'm making really for myself. I'm so glad I got the cotton yarn, and such a suitable pattern because of the really warm weather here. I really can't wait to finish this! :)
Mollie likes it too!
Here's a 'sculpture' of it in case you haven't gotten enough. I just joined the new ball of yarn and have finished a couple of rows on it. :P

I'm wondering which gift to make...
I still have some time for my friend won't be delivering so soon but it's always good to plan since I'm kinda... slow :P
I thought this blanket would be nice.
The pattern is available here
Then again hats are also cute, and this one seems real quick to make
If you looked at the pattern here, I'm sure you would agree as well.
I also thought this was really cute!!
the pattern is here ... but honestly i'm a little annoyed with the powder puff sort of yarn... :(
The last hat option is this
and the pattern is here.
I thought i'd make a little baby top - i can't remember where i saw it now - but for the moment, these should be the options...

There were already 10 rows of pattern worked on and I was so glad.
Today i realized that I was also finishing the ball of yarn at approx 20 rows of pattern or more...
there were mistakes after mistakes (I don't know why!)
Argh then try as I might I couldn't save it!! :(
Now i have to start all over again~~ :'( Boo hoo...

I think this would be a gift eventually cos it's to hot to wear this in this 'sunny island, set in the sea~~'
Ok, i know i have many things to learn 'after exams' and i've done two of them. Not bad huh? :D
Can't wait to finish this really... :D

And i was telling a friend i'll undo my bartika yarn tank i was working on. It's been stuck on the needles far too long because of the !@#*&$#*( tangled yarn.
Here's the mess of the yarn
and here's the yarn wound on my trusty new winder. For some strange reason, the yarn actually broke into three (!) and i ended up having one huge ball of yarn and two small ones.
Ok i think if there's anyone in need of a winder, please hire me (ahahaha) it's such a fun thing to do!
