There's Knitting Here

Really. I'm not joking. There's a finished object:

Rowan Tank Top

This is the fine gauge cotton tank Arabella from Rowan magazine 35. I started this last summer and hated the cotton, so it sat and sat. I am determined to clear out my knitting basket before the cooler weather hits, since I want to get back to wool, so this one is finished! I made the straps a bit wider than called for so I might be able to wear a bra with it. It fits perfectly!

Since this one is finished, I dug into the stash for another summer project. I completely forgot about this Colinette Enigma/Mercury Granada jacket that I had bought at the Garden District Needlework shop in New Orleans during a trip in 2004. I thought this would be great for summer, but the first time I started to work on the jacket the slippery ribbon yarn made me crazy, so I stuffed it back into the closet.

With a bit more knitting experience and bamboo needles, I have finished the big pieces and am now adding the trim. The colour is popsicle--perfect for a hot day in Texas.
