A Very Berry T-shirt

It's done! I had tons of stitching time, though not for a very good reason. We had planned on going to our cabin in Kirkwood for a much deserved vacation. Packed up, kids excited, hubby and I excited. We drove there (4 hours) - looked around (cabin had sprung a leak on the top level and totally needs to be gutted) - called insurance - turned around and headed back home (4 hours). Lots of knitting time. Thanks to wonderful in-laws - they asked if we would like to use their condo in Monterey for a couple of days and we said "YES". Repacked and drove 1 1/2 hours to Monterey and tried to relax for a couple of days. It was so nice to be away even though we spent easily half of the time on the phone with insurance (so far they have been very easy to work with-knock on wood). Then drove 1 1/2 hours home. The day after we got back from Monterey, hubby and I drove back to Kirkwood to meet with insurance adjusters and miscellaneous other people who will be taking care of the demo and restoration of our cabin. Again the in-laws came to the rescue and stayed with the kids so they didn't also have to make the trip back to Kirkwood. What would we do without such great family around?!!

Anyway, back to the "T-shirt". I love this pattern!! It is well written, there are no mistakes and it is easy to complete. The construction happens all on it's own - the only seams are the underarm seams - it is knit totally in the round and goes so-so-so quickly.
A close up of the color on the top portion. No matter how many times I photgraphed this, I just could not get an accurate representation of the color. This is very close though.

Here's my cutie wearing it!

She does love a photo shoot....

And of course....the back.
