Cherry Bomb

A bomb it is, not in the good way.

Exhibit A
Note the curl on the top at the neckline and the curl at the bottom. I have tried multiple ways to fix this and to no avail.

Exhibit B
I knew that I had lost a couple of pounds since starting this garment. I hadn't realized just how much I had underestimated the effect 10 pounds would have on it. I could have gone down at least one size and been okay.

I did get it finished in time to wear it tomorrow, but for the sake of my pride I am putting the tank top down and stepping away. We shall both be making a visit to the frog pond this week.

To end this on a happy note, I'd like to show this off:

This was one of my purchases last week when I visit Simply Fibers. Isn't it beautiful? I love the rich color and how the tone changes throughout the yarn. It was the first thing that I picked up when I walked in the door and the first thing that made it into my shopping bag when I paid for my purchases.

If you would like to compliment the yarn, you may direct your comments to Sarah as she is the creator of it. Well done, Sarah!

I'm sorry about the top... well, not sorry that it is too big though :) :) That's a great compliment isn't it?

That yarn at the bottom looks scrumpiliscious :)
Listen... you know what I found last night while going through a stack of magazines? A sock magazine I had bought for your KSKS parcel and which I forgot to tuck in there... guess you'll have it winging to you some time this week :)
Cheers Eva

Awwww, sorry that the tank didn't work out for you! But you're losing weight, so there's a bright side. :-)

Sorry about the top. Congrats on the weight loss though! :)
Could you somehow make a bag out of it (saw that on Yarn Harlot today)?
Love the yarn. Freaking gorgeous!

Yay for purple yarn!

Sorry the top doesn't fit. But you lost weight! Yay! So it's like a compliment.

I thought that yarn looked familiar! (That was my favorite colorway - excellent choice!) What are your plans for it?

Sorry your top doesn't fit... it's great that you've slimmed down but DARN! all that work gone to waste.

sorry about the tank! but the good thing in all this is that it's too big right? i did a tank this summer and it was a size too small :( bummer... part of that was my fault! couldn't stop the snaking.....
