For my next knit, I selected a project from Hip To Knit by Judith L. Swartz. Her book is a good choice for new knitters, which has basic knitting instructions throughout and a variety of projects from socks to sweaters in several styles. I followed the pattern for the Ribbed Ribbon Tank, and modified it by doing garter stitches, quasi cable and a racer back (let's just say I changed it all around..lol) and I crocheted the straps and racer back part. I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in perry primrose and love the way it works up. I also tried my hands at cables... its hard to see it and its more of a twisted/crooked cable than just a cable...lol. In the end this project was more about tension and I think I was able to work that out.
