Haltermelon progress

Here's the Summer halter I've been knitting over the last week for Tess.  I realize these pics are very dark and washed out.  I grabbed my Canon Powershot, but it doesn't seem to take very good photos anymore. Anyway, I'm getting close to knitting the straps.  It's a fun pattern written by Alana Dakos which can be found here.  For the green, I'm using Rowan Calmer in the colorway Kiwi and the pink is actually Berroco Weekend in a fun bright watermelon pink (fitting, eh?).  I have to admit that I'm not really liking the Berroco Weekend yarn much.  It splits very easily and it's extremely slippery. I would have preferred to use Rowan Calmer in a pink instead, but I just didn't want to wait for the yarn to ship.  I also, mistakenly, thought that both yarns were 75% cotton/25% acrylic, but it turns out that the Weekend yarn is 75% acrylic/25% cotton.  I hope that doesn't cause any problem when I go to wash it! 
Okay, I guess I need to learn to knit an i-cord!
