Finished Object!

My tank is finished:

Okay, I have to sew in the rest of the ends, but it is finished and it fits beautifully. Maybe some modeled shots this weekend when I have someone else to hold the camera. I think I'll probably be making another one because it does fit and I just love it.
Spec:
Pattern: Shapely Tank from White Lies Designs
Yarn: Shine from Knitpicks in Orchard
Needles: Size 6 (with 5s for the edging)
Modifications: I got perfect row gauge, but my stitch gauge was a bit tight, so I just went up to the next size in the pattern and it worked out perfectly. I really do love this tank. Can't you tell? I'm really looking forward to her book next month.

Can you believe it's less than two weeks until the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival?! I'm going with a knitting/spinning friend this year so it should be incredibly fun. Anyone else going?

Very pretty!

I'm considering Shine for one of the tanks in the new IK. Do you think it's too heavy for our hot Va summers?

That's a very nice tank! I love the color too.
I just got my first ball of Shine yarn today and I can't believe how soft it is.

It's a beautiful pink! Very neat and shapely, but I echo the comments above: wear it and take some pictures!
