View Full Version : Summer Swing Tank

06-20-2006, 11:00 AM
:D Last night I finished Allysa's Summer Swing Tank (http://www.freepatterns.com/fp_pdfs/Other/Knitting/summerswingtop.pdf) using size 6 and 7 addis and Coats & Clarks Cotton Plus in a pretty, very girly shade of pink.
This is the 4th project for Team Summer Ensemble, my Knitting World Cup (http://yarn-monkey.blogspot.com/2006/05/knitting-world-cup-announced.html) entry. Completed thus far is Kidlet Tank (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/DSCN1650.jpg), Allysa Halter (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/DSCN1697.jpg) and Short Snort Tank (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/DSCN1705.jpg). Yet to be done are Mission Tank (http://www.kerriesplace.co.uk/missiontank.html), GF Swing Coat (http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/knitandtonic/2005/08/draft_7.html) and, I have a design in mind that I'm going to work on today...I have lots of the pink yarn leftover, so, I'm going to give this design in my head a try.... :?? :thinking: I wonder if I can translate what's in my head to the needles......?

As you can see...the summer swing tank is going to be very swingy, twirly, good for spinning and twirling action ;)

That is so cute! I love the color you chose too. I bookmarked the pattern -- I may have to make that one for my SIL's baby.

WOW, that's SO CUTE!! I saw that pattern recently on knittingpatterncentral and thought it was adorable. She's going to :heart: it!

:D Thanks everyone, it was fun to knit, too ;)
I'm now working on the next project, I think I will call it "Allysa Ring A Ding Tank"...you'll understand the name if the design actually comes to be ;)

I love it! It's on my to-do list!

sooo pretty!!! Man, another project to add to my ever-growing list....

I loved the pattern! It's really fun to do. I need to try Emma's on her to amke sure it fits. Is it wrong of me to hope that it doesn't so that I can knit it again? Next time, I will make the ribbing section wider.

:cheering: :cheering:

She's going to love that (and everything else)!

I've said it before, you're just flying through the World Cup stuff... makes me feel like a slacker for only doing one sweater. :lol:

Seriously though, everything is looking soooo good, keep it up!

I'm currently working on the next project for Knitting World Cup...I don't know yet if it's going to be a sundress or a tank...time will tell ;)

Thanks so much for the links... I've been spoiling Lissa rotten, and I can see these helping enable me into spoiling her more! :D
