Next Tank Top

Equals my next tank top project! Isn't it cute!? The pattern is from the April 2004 Knit N Style magazine and the yarn is Schachenmayr Micro.  The pattern calls for size 5 needles, but I like the fabric better on a size four. After doing the math it will work out perfectly with the size 4 needles using the instructions for the medium size. Janette told me how to use math to alter the pattern, and I'm really excited to see how it will turn out. I'm not going to do the little stringy things because I really think it looks a lot better without them. I am in love with this yarn. It is soooooooooo soft, and I wish that I had bought more of it. It reminds me of Lionbrand Microspun, but I think that it is a bit softer. I know I'm going to have to be careful with it as I knit because it splits easily. I should be getting my circular in the mail soon along with another yummy yarn purchase. Oh yeah I forgot to mention it is knit in the round up to the armholes. Woohoo less finishing!
