World's Most Unflattering Sweater

Yep, that's what I think of the fitted tank. In case you needed more than just my word...It looks semi-normal, but when I put my arms down, it starts to look rather ugly.This is just not a design for bigger chicks. I knew from the beginning that the color wouldn't be too good with my hair color, but I also knew that the tank design wasn't great for someone like me. It's just too short for me and the fit is a little off. On the bright side, it's now an FO and I started some Christmas presents this weekend too.
This will be the year of the 4-seasons dishcloths. These two are to represent fall. I've got several other colors for the rest of the seasons and I'll be giving people a set of four. I figure I can knit these quickly and everyone can use them.

The rest of the weekend was spent watching movies, going to a dog show, and eating way too much food at cookouts. I'm still feeling full this morning and I wish that feeling would go away. Oh well. Better get my butt back on WW so I don't undo everything that I've done so far.

Knit on...

I like the color of your fitted tank! I have the same issue, I think technically I am what they call "short waisted". If you feel like tinking back, you could just start the ribbing a bit lower and add some length - I think that would look good.

Yeah, I just have never really liked this from the start, so I probably shouldn't have put that much work into it. It was free, so can't complain about the cost of the yarn or pattern at least!

I love the idea of the four-seasons dishcloths! I had been wondering what to do with all of that kitchen cotton I have... and now I know! :)
