Is it possible that June is busier than May?

It seems that way, what with swim team, dive team, tennis, and VBS.  Needless to say, I’ve gotten no sewing done, zip, zilch, nada.  I’m so jealous of you all that are cranking out beautiful Summer garments one after the other.  Well, I can dream of July, right?  I have been knitting, though.  I’m still working on the Karma Tank:

It looks pretty decent from this angle, right?  Take a look at the upper edge.  It’s not supposed to fall over like this!

The fit of the stockinette area was all off, even after I put this in the dryer.  Way too big.  Obviously, my stockinette gauge was off or something.  Soooooo, I did the thing I HATE doing and ripped back the bust area and started again, decreasing the stitch count to the next smaller size.  I’m about 3 inches up from the herringbone stitch, so we’ll see how this goes.  I’m knitting this as a part of the tank top knit-a-long on Ravelry, in a group appropriately called the Sexy Knitters Club.

I’m still dreaming of sewing, though, and, in a weak moment, “procured” a bunch of Jalie patterns that I’ve been craving:

I can’t wait to get started on a pair of those jeans, I’ve heard nothing but good things about these!
