As for the Soleil . . .

Its done.  Sorta.
Side View
At least the knitting part is done.  Shoulder seams need to be sewn together and ends need to be woven in.  Then I've got to crochet a border 'round the neckline and armholes.  But the actual knitting part is done--it just ain't completely done.
Front View
As for the fit: a preliminary fitting proved successful--as in the tank fits.  Yay medium covers my perfectly plump self very well.  Only drawback:  it's a wee bit shorter than I'd like, but I can live with it.  Besides, I'm not sure but the silk-bamboo may stretch with wash 'n wear.  Only time will tell.
Lace Detail
For now, back to the Navy Bohus.


  1. yeah, they tell us to wash and block our swatches, and i never have. it usually works out.

  2. Whew, what a relief! I'm not the only one. Sometimes I feel bad about not washing my swatches (although to be fair, I usually use acrylics).
