I haven't posted anything in several days, but I have managed to get a little knitting done. It's almost finished!
My goal is to have it ready-for-wear by vacation. (We leave next Monday, Aug. 3.)
ignore the bra straps! they will be replaced with (convertible) spaghetti straps. and a white ribbon will be threaded through the eyelets just under the bust.
(to explain: by convertible, i mean that the spaghetti straps, which will be i-cords, will have hooks attached to the ends, and there will be a series of eyes sewn to the inside of the top hem of the shirt so the straps can be moved or removed.)
