Just in time for summer .....

I started a new project last night .... the Branching Out scarf. I'm using Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, but dummy me got the whole skein in one big knot. If I can get it out tonight, I'll post some pics tomorrow.

Here is the tank finished. I'm supposed to crochet a chain stitch and tie a bow with it at the shoulders. I was thinking of doing it in the blue, but I'm not sure. I might just leave it the way it is.

Almost done!

Here is the latest I've gotten done on the ruffled tank. I think it looks pretty cute without the pink ruffle and was almost not going to put it on .... but then I remembered I have a hole in the pink stripe that I wanted to cover up. I've got 1 armhole almost finished, 1 armhole and neck to finish in the pink. I'm sure I'll be done by the weekend.

I thought I was almost done

Last night I got the front and back of the ruffled tank sewn together. All I have left to do is sew on 2 ruffles in the round. Easy peasy, right? Well it just took me 2 hours to do one round .... my stitches were crazy tight and I had to increase 1 with every stitch. My fingers hurt. So now I'm on my 2nd round (there's 248 stitches now that doubled the size) ... with only 15 more to go. It may be next week before I get this baby finished.
