Why, it's a finished tank!

[And here's the REALLY BIG sweater picture.
This summer I was into knitting cardis because, to be honest, I never wear any of the tanks I have knit for myself. Unfortunately, it's the shameful truth. But tanks are always fun to knit, so at the beginning of spring I promised myself that I could knit one tank this season on the condition that i)
I will wear it, oh yes I will, and ii)
it be in a neutral [read: boring] color in order to ensure compliance of condition (i). And you know what? I really
like this tank so it's easy to comply with these conditions. The "halter" feel of it makes it very comfy. I've worn it twice already!
: The tank made its debut for running errands on Saturday, and I have action shots for you
: The tank peering longingly into the closed Plassard shop and the tank going grocery shopping (oh, how exciting!) at Auchan.]
As I've been somewhat slothful in getting finished tank pictures up, there are LOTS of silly whack dancing shots for you. [Note: There really was music playing in the background...the dance shots should give you an idea as to what we listened to that morning!] Clear your cache, friends:
Project details: Debardeur 4b
from Phildar Famille Printemps 2004
, knit in the smallest size using size 4mm needles and Plassard Grand Large Batik yarn in a subtly variegated cream color. In order to keep the free edges at the armholes neat, I used a chain selvedge (slipping all sts purlwise on the WS rows and knitting them on the RS rows). Pattern was altered in that I did not knit the ribbing using smaller needles and the neckband was knitted-on instead of sewn-on. I worked the ribbing loosely in order to give the tank some ease, because the last form-fitting tank I knit in worsted weight yarn made me sweat like Rocky during his cliche training scenes when I wore it.
