I present to you................my ham

Happy Friday!  I've got one thing finished this week, and it was such a fun and satisfying knit.  It might not be warm enough to wear it yet, but we are having the most wonderfully warm, sunny spring weather.  Yesterday I sat in the sun in the garden to knit for a while, it was wonderful.  




Before any eagle eyes call me out on this--yes I took the picture before I finished the crochet border along the bottom and the arm pits.  You know how it goes though, you've got to grab the camera when the sun is out and the model is willing.  

Stats:
Yarn: Spring Crochet Assortment (Lidl's), 100% cotton.
Learned: The i-cord bind off.  Oh wow, that's brilliant.  It was well worth making the tank top just to learn this.  I used this video.

Lastly, here's a picture of me (I know, this almost never happens).  You can see I'm rocking the Tappan Zee cardigan I finished in November.  I love this cardigan!!



Here's where I'm hopping:
