Spring Fling Again

Take 2 (SNAP!)

Another SpringKnit-UpButton.jpg. Remember me?
Alison's spring fling tank is back!

Project Specs:
Pattern: Alison's spring fling tank
Suggested Yarn:GGH Esprit
Yarn Used: GGH Esprit (color 13)
Needle Size: US 9 & 10
Gauge: approx. 2.5 st./in

Just want to mention a few things I love about this pattern (and I could go on and on 'cause there is a lot to love). For starters it has triggered an appreciation for the not so usual yarn. I probably would have never touched that yarn. It has been sitting in my stash for ages and now I just love it and am not so fearful of trying new textures. I also loved the all in one piece method(no seaming, woohoo!). Not to mention the bend over without worry neckline and armholes which allow you to reach high minus the bra show. And, you can wear a regular bra with straps and all, not the let me find which bra will work with this tank bra.

Can you tell how much I enjoyed this pattern?
Thanks Alison!

More on Take One coming soon...

I agree, that's a really great colour on you. It gives you a nice glow. Very pretty.

Froggy, thank you for sharing your opinion about the pattern. Now I am considering knitting this, too. And I love the colour! You see, BLUE will maybe become your favourite!
