Isabella: Back and Front

Here is the back of my tank. I know that it looks like it is 20 feet long, but I assure you that it is the perfect length. I did not bind off as the directions stated and I plan only to bind off the neck after I finish the front to double check the neck line decreases that I altered. I am loving this tank and can't wait to finish it. It will be a month on the 4th since I started this and I do hope to finish before the end of May. Keep your fingers crossed ( I need all the help I can get).

Here is the beginning of of the front. I am so far cruising right along. After this post I plan on sitting myself down for some series knitting time. Aren't the Magnolia Trees behind my tank beautiful? I'm trying to be a little artsy in my photos (emphasis on the trying). It was beautiful here today in Boston.

On the none knitting front I wanted to show off my new haircut....

Also be on the look out for a post on on my 'Shape It' summer goals. My friend Anne and I are going to be posting and encouraging each other on getting in shape this summer. Although I know this is a knitting blog, it is also were I get lots of support, so I thought what a perfect place!!!

I got my Sockapalooza pal (further to be referred to as Sockza, thanks Chan) and I am so excited about finding the perfect yarn and pattern for her.

Happy Socks, Knitting, and SUMMER!

Pretty color....I, too, am a Bostonian. Lived north most of my life now am south. However, I am 30 years at man's Greatest Hospital. The view out your window looks very familiar, Brooklineish....
