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!
