Unhealthy Obsession

Evidence of how one college student's obsession with knitting has completely driven her nuts.

FO: Ribbon X-Back

I completed my Ribbon X-Back tank top on Saturday, and wore it out on Sunday :) Despite all my frustrations with knitting it, I am very pleased with the actual garment. I hope that after washing it will still fit well, I wish I had washed a swatch before hand ;)

I did end up knitting a swatch the other day, it's 3.5" x 5.5". I'm going to throw it in the wash to see how it fares.

I am contemplating making another one, actually, with the Ola yarn used in the pattern, but I have a bunch of other projects on deck and no money for new yarn, so I am not sure if this will happen anytime soon.

Also see my post in the Ribbon X-Back KAL for more details.

    Uh, Diana? You can get Zephyr for $3.75 an ounce?!! Is is Jaggerspun Zephyr? It sounds like it.
    Would you put me in touch with your LYS, pretty, pretty please?
    The best price I can find here is over $6.00 an ounce. For those kind of savings, it would be worth it for me to go through the hassle of mail-order, shipping, Canada Customs etc etc.
    You can e-mail me at "Ojanina@shaw.ca". (Without the quote marks, of course.)
    Thanks so much for your help, knit on, Janina Oakley
