Sexy?

As a member of the Sexy Knitters' Club, I decided to knit Orangina. Glampyre has a kicky little pattern here, all cute, and sexy too. I'm not sure this falls into any of those categories:


Granted, the photo's not that great. I'm finally a TRUE knit blogger, having taken pictures of myself under the key conditions:
1. Late at night...
2. In some stage of either a. undress or b. jammie-dress...
3. Headless...
4. In the bathroom mirror...
5. With either a. flash reflection or b. camera shadow... (extra points for both)
6. Wearing a piece of (partially) knit-wear in some stage of construction.

I'm not too sure where to go with this one. I have some ideas. I could keep going as planned and knit from here down in ribbing. I could keep going in the lace pattern and figure out a way to add in waist shaping; basically creating a new pattern of a lace shell. I could frog and do either of these ideas in a bigger, (more boob-friendly) size. I could frog and find something else to do with the yarn. Oy. Given that I want a top I will actually wear, and, ideally, admit to having made, this turn of events is NO BUENO.

What would you do?

    I'd probably frog it and find something more boob friendly.

    You could maybe find a coordinating tank top to wear under it.

    I say keep going with the pattern and like Pam says, wear a cute tank underneath.

    Cool photo. I think it looks great, keep going. I have been tempted a few times to knit this for myself. NOt really one to wear knitwear in summer though.

    I love this top I am also working on it and I am no way near as far along as you are though.

    I would go a little farther with the lace not to much then do the ribbing. I think it will look great!
