Soleil is Done, I Think…

My Soleil tank top is done but not perfect.

I blocked Soleil yesterday on my living room floor. I made a nice blocking cage for it to keep the 3 and 6 year olds away from it. Sharp pins and all, I thought it was best. But really, I didn’t want anyone messing with my Soleil after all of the work it took to finish.

You’ll notice that the color in the photo is a lot greener than my other posts. I finally got around to messing with the white balance on my camera, so this is the actual color. Also notice, IT FITS! Now I won’t need to find a friend of a different size. The tops of the straps are still rolling in, and the bottom is starting to roll up. I could add another row of crochet stitches to the straps. But I’m not sure what I can do to keep the bottom from rolling up. It’s fine if I don’t move. But as soon as I start to move, the bottom rolls up. Should I just live with it?

What next? I already have a Branching Out scarf and a Nothin’ But a T-Shirt on the needles. And I’m just about ready to start the sweater for Liam with my custom dinosaur design. It’s plenty to keep me busy.
