>This afternoon I decided to have another go at knitting the front of the tank top.
I had a change of plan on how I was going to do it and decided I would change the main colour to the orange and use the purple for the motif, that way I definitely wouldn’t run out of yarn.
I followed Cerita’s advice and made sure I pushed the contrast yarn right back under the yarn seperator at the beginning of each row. It worked – I never had any problems at all.
That was until I started shaping the armholes. I had positioned the motif in the wrong place. The idea was that the motif went all the way up the side right up to the shoulder. I didn’t plan on having to lose any of it when I decreased for the armholes.
I was sure I’d worked it out right but apparently I hadn’t.
So once again I took it off the machine.
I’m not too happy with the join between the motif and the main yarn, I think that’s something I’ll have to work on for future projects:
So that’s the end of the tank top – I don’t think I’ll be having another go at knitting it.
I guess I’ll be making cotton dishcloths.
Talk to you later,
