Tank Progress

I'm catching up on my Green Apple Tank Sweater.  It's slow going, but less slow than it was when it was all ribbing.  At least now there's a good mix of ribbing and stockinette to keep me from getting too bored. 

Here's how it looks at this moment:

There's about 7 more inches to go on this.  Then I have to figure out what edge to put on it to keep it from curling.  Or maybe I'll just let it curl, not sure what I'll do yet.  I do know that around the neckline I'm going to have to put some type of finish on it.  My cast on ended up being very sloppy and it's really bugging me.  I also do not know how I'm going to correct that as of yet.

It's all a learning process and I'm learning quite a lot.  I love the way knitting keeps you humble.   Just when you think you know so much, something jumps up and bites you on the behind.  I now know not to use that cast on in the future (sort of a back loop hybrid) when starting a project.  I also now know what not to knit for a ahem 39 (plus one) year old in the too sexy sweater department.  Every sweater teaches me so much.  Maybe more than I really wanted to know.
