Holla Knits KAL - Week 1

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this on the blog before, but I am participating in the Holla Knits eight week knit-a-long (KAL) that is currently going on. We all voted on which pattern we wanted to knit from the spring/summer collection, and the Holla Back Tank by Emma Welford is what won (which is the one I was voting for).

If "Holla Back Girl" by Gwen Stefani popped into your head when you read that, you're not alone. The song keeps popping into my head while I work on this.

The front and back of the tank are knit separately, and this first week we got to work on the front, which is basically just stockinette. We were supposed to get through the first nine inches, which I now have completed:

Check out that Augustus paw trying to help me hold down the curling stockinette.

As of yesterday afternoon, this project has been living in my new Ravelry project bag I just got in the mail:

The graphic is printed on an Eco Bag, which are 100% organic, fair trade cotton. Pretty sweet.
