The back of the tank is blocking. I finished it last night while watcing Tour de France coverage. I think this will probably be my last project with ribbon yarn. I have decided that I don't particularly like it. I should have ordered the Schachenmayr Aurora from Elann. I think that would have more closely matched the Tahki Lily that was called for in the pattern. But I needed the instant gratification of going to my LYS and I really liked the color. This ribbon yarn is at least a centimeter wide, and that doesn't make it easy to create uniform looking stitches.
