Finished: Holla Back Tank

The Holla Knits KAL is just about wrapped up, and I have this gorgeous Holla Back Tank to show for it:

I love the finished project - it will definitely be worn during this Indian Summer we're having in Southern California. I used Knit Picks Stroll Sock in Everglade Heather, which makes a surprisingly wearable sweater. You wouldn't think a yarn described as "sock" would be so lovely on the body.

The design itself is great - I made no changes except to knit a size smaller than normal to account for my gauge being off. As some knitters have noticed, that neckline is low. If you're modest about the cleavage, I'd shorten the straps a bit. And the bottom band will not take an hour, like you suppose. It will take 3, so plan accordingly. 

But overall, it's a success. And I've got 9 other ladies sharing their FO's along with me, so lookie here.
