I am on a mission to get projects finished at the moment - the 2nd of the Faberge gloves and the Express Lane socks are well underway, can't wait to see my sister's face when she gets the former. Hubby says the 1st sock fits really well and feels super snuggly, so that also looks like it will be a success!

In the meantime, I decided last week that it really was time to finish Alice's tank top (before she outgrew it!). So, a couple of evenings of dedicated ribbing (armholes and neck), plus a Sunday afternoon of seaming the sides produced this:

Phildar Oxygene in Blackberry & Lupin; Cygnet DK Superwash in Grey; Phildar Frimas in Lupin
Needles: 3mm and 3.5mm
Started: 8 January 2009
Finished: 8 March 2009 (Really shouldn't have taken this long!)

I'm really pleased with the result - and she seems quite happy with it too - she wore it to nursery on Monday, and apparently was stroking it all day long - happy Mummy! Even better, the length means she can maybe still wear it in early autumn!
