A little more than 8 hours later and this project is finished.. this was really fun to knit and really fast.. and look!!! it's a simple lace pattern.. I encountered no problems at all with this pattern.. and what's even better it actually fits and looks nice... the pattern calls for crochet halter straps but I'm going to sew on some tan grosgrain ribbon.. if I make this again ... I will use a size smaller needle for the waist ribbing.. I would have liked it to be a little snugger.. unfortunately I saw this as I was knitting but I didn't have the next size down needle which is a 10 1/2 26" circular.. so I continued on the size 11.....

The pattern is from Interweave Knits spring 2007.. it's the tea rose halter top...the yarn was very old worsted weight cotton from phildar and pingouin yarns one strand of each held together.
