Basalt Tank finished

I showed you a sneak peak of the basalt tank (design Norah Gaughan, Knitting nature) in my post dd 14th of June - knit in public day. (and I'm ashamed to have to admit, that I didn't cast on the last stitches for my Bonsai Tunic yet - next week, promised!).

I finished knitting the tank in summer and when I tried it on I had a hunchback where the back strip hits the half hexagon at the back. So I put it aside. Onlyangelika recommended to wash it and it will be fine. I did so and she was right. The back part is a bit loose when I wear it but the hunchback is gone.

7 Skeins Lang Linosa, needles 3.5mm (US 4)
yarn bought at WollZeit, Mainz
design by Norah Gaughan from Knitting nature

Das sieht richtig klasse aus ! Kannst Du es im Herbst nicht mit einem langärmeligen T-Shirt drunter tragen ?
