Finished: Ribs and Lace Tank

I know what you're thinking, three posts in one day? Well I didn't want to lump them together and I have been procrastinating on writing these up for some time.

So within the week of coming home from the vacation I finished the tank (the pictures were taken at night so I'm sorry that they're so bad.

It's done right?
It looked done right? Not too bad for only 3 days of knitting time.

Take a look
Wait what it that bunched up piece I feel?

See - facepalm
Oh sugar (expression borrowed from my knitting Grandmother), I twisted the strap before I KITCHENERED it together. Okay, not too big of a deal, but let me just tell you how much fun undoing kitchener stitch is, just about as wonderful as having a cavity filled.

Oh, I love it! This is springsteena from ravelry. I actually think it's a super cute twist in the strap!
