Last Saturday when I was getting ready for the morning knitting workshop, I couldn’t quite get happy with my look for the day. It was hot and I really wanted a knitted tank to drop over my cami. I have a couple tops on the needles but not ready for my wearing.
Susanne arrives for our walk before knitting wearing just the look that I was coveting. This lovely piece was inspired by Interweave Knits Spidery Tank pattern featured in the Summer 2009 issue. I’ve become quite enthralled with digital media on my iPad….so I downloaded the magazine today….amazingly enough I did not have that magazine in my knitting library. Susanne used Shaefer’s Laurel….a cotton that so many of us have enjoyed.
An aside….Cheryl has retired and closed her yarn business. This lovely yarn will be gone from the market. Some of us from Saturday morning group were possessed recently (imagine that) … we ordered some Laurel. Of course, I got some because it is one of my favorite yarns to knit particularly since I love knitting with cottons that produce great results. I knit Marty’s Afghan from Laurel which I so enjoyed the knitting and the finished afghan.
Back to Susanne…isn’t this a fun look and perfect for those hot days?! Here’s a close-up of the pattern!
