Pink Tomato


My pink tomato is finished. It was a really fun, quick knit. It's knit with "stash", Summer Soft (Filatura Lanarota) 60% Rayon and 40% Acrylic from Smileys Yarns....at only $1.99 a ball. I made it in the 48", which gave me a negative ease of about 2" and really like the fit. I extended the length by a couple of inches and made the neckline higher than the pattern called for.

Very cute! I decided to work on Fifi for the SKC KAL instead of start my Tomato. Now that I've seen yours, I'm thinking that I'll have to work on BOTH projects.

I love it! I made a black Tomato awhile back and seeing your pink one is making me want to start another one in a lighter color!!

I love the higher neckline. You did a great job!

A top with a real designer look! And as a matter of fact it IS custom-designed!
Three cheers for your "tomate rose"
