My Vogue Sweater is Finished!

After about a month of hard on and off work, the sweater, she is finally finished (insert bad french accent)! After a few false starts with bad gauge I was on a roll. This was a super easy sweater even for a novice like me. This is the Off the Shoulder Tank from the new issue of Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2008. It is knitted in Ella Rae Silkience on size 5 needles.
I had to extend the top a little to account for boobage (technical term), and I made the waist length a little shorter. I wanted it to sit just above my hip bones so it wouldn't roll like my tops normally do. I think it ended up shorter than I wanted, but it was a learning experience. I think it's pretty damn good for my first garment!
