Shapely Tank

The Shapely Tank is all finished. It still needs a little blocking, but it is done and fits like it was made for me. Great pattern. So great that I have cast on another one, in a cotton blend.

When it comes to contests and/or knit-alongs, I am a day late and a dollar short. Usually miss them by a mile (or am not at all interested in the item-along). But I stumbled on the Yarn Miracle website and saw a button for Dish Rag Tag. Perfect for me. I love dishrags. I knit them all the time. Limited to 200 participants, this group is now closed, but it should be a blast.

Finally, a touch of summer in the persons of DH and DD2.

Hi there, I am on your Dishrag Tag Team and am enjoying looking at all the member's blogs. Your shapely tank looks wonderful, I've actually wondered if I could do it with microspun (have some purple) so may give it a shot now.

Hi there, thanks for the visit and nice to meet you. I made one 2 years ago out of Microspun and it has held up quite well. Microspun has a really nice hand for this pattern.

So when are you going to model it for us on a Wednesday night? Of course, I should talk because my attendance has been so spotty lately. I might have to break down and make one too.

Dish Rag Tag, huh? Sounds like a lot of fun.

Yes, make one. I'ss give you some pointers in case you (like I) want to avoid the dread side seams. God knows when I'll get to Borders. I really miss it (knitting AND convivial company). Every Wed is a new adventure around here. Yeah, the DRTAG is going to be fun.
