I read Judy Laquidera's blog all the time. She's a knitting fiend. She convinced me to join Tour de Sock this year. What was I thinking!?! Some people have finished two socks in just hours - less than a day! I have knit on this for a long time. I was quite confused when I started the gusset decreases, which ask you to follow 3 different charts while AT THE SAME TIME, and not on the charts, decreasing the gusset. Oh, well, they will be pretty - if I ever finish them.

Made two of these for friends - still haven't mailed one of them - need to make one for me to keep!

I hope to make more - but not from this pattern! It is too low-cut, and way too big - I had to take it up from the shoulders as well as on the sides. What I want is the fit from my regular tee shirt pattern, but with bust darts...
Back to the drawing board ...
