Summer Tank for a summery day!


Today the sun is shining it's about 60 degrees and I was motivated to get this tank finished. Still side seams to sew and ends to weave. It's a cotton/lycra yarn from Classic Elite called Star. I bought it last year when I was visiting my sister in CO and we were yarn shop hopping. This was from Showers of Flowers in Denver (scroll down and take their virtual tour). A HUGE, lovely shop! Makes my LYS look like a matchbox! The pattern "Spandex Tank" was designed by Sharon Wittenberg owner of 2 "Purls" shops in Tuscon, AZ. I did not use the recommended yarn of Cascade Fixation because what I did use was on sale and very similar! I have 2 skeins left and a bit from a couple balls of the lighter yellows so what should I do with that? Any ideas? 112yds./skein +.

You're one of the few people I know who can not only wear those colors, but horizontal stripes as well...(oh, and sleeveless, too!)

(note I can't type in green ink but I'm envious nonetheless!)
Looks great!
(((hugs)))

Ooo ... very pretty! For the extra skeins, what about a purse to match? Congrats on a wonderful job! Hugs!

Diana-
Love the tank-- love the colors- and as I remember from seeing it as WIP in person- I love the feel of the yarn. Won't be long before you are wearing that one!
