Finished Roundabout Tank

Here is the finished Roundabout Leaf Tank. I've been done for nearly a month now, but i haven't had time until recently to get it photographed.
It's knit in Kollage Cornucopia, a 100% corn braided tape yarn. I highly recommend the yarn to anyone, but especially those interested in alternative fibers.
I have to admit, the shot isn't great, the fact that my boyfriend is right next to me hides part of the tank, and his hand is not placed properly to get a good picture. So another shot is in order at some point, and perhaps i'll even be smiling in that one...

Unlike a previous comment on the fit of a roundabout, i find that i love the way the garment clings and shapes to me. Perhaps that has to do with the yarn. and the fact that i'm relatively young and in shape. It turned out longer than i anticipated. I would have stopped a full rotation earlier had i been paying more attention and following the pattern less. But i like the longer fit as well, even if it wasn't what i was going for.

even before reading your text, I thougth the length and fit of your tank is just right, not to say it suites you very well...es hilft schlank und jung zu sein;)

It looks so good on you, and you look like you are smiling! The length is so "new" and nice to see this on a younger knitter!

You did a great job with this! It seems like a difficult knit to make fit right too.
