X-citing X-Back

Name: Ribbon X-Back from Knitty
Yarn: Crystal Palace Yarns Deco-Ribbon, color #9538 Tulips
Comments: Could I be any paler??? What a yucky picture. Oh well, I still like the tank. It was a fun, quick knit. A lot of people in the KAL had a hard time with sizing, but I lucked out on my first try (thanks to heeding everyone's hints). Many people made the pattern in a size smaller than what the pattern calls for, but I made mine true to pattern and used a size 10 needle instead of an 11.

The girls and I are going to my parents' house in the country to pick dewberries (wild blackberries). This is something that I did as a child, and am so happy that my daughters can experience it as well. Hopefully my mother and I will get some knitting in while the wee ones nap this afternoon.

The tank looks awesome, I knew I would like it as some as I saw the colorway you had picked out a while back. Excellent job!
