it's May 2007 Creative Knitting~ ( I just ordered my subscription~) Sorry no pic~ :doh: but it's knitted in worsted weight yarn, sz 8 needles

Sublime camisole~ it has a crocheted border and sleeves but it is a basic K2P2 rib..
I have never made a tank before but I think I am going to try this easy one~!! :happydance: :happydance:

THANKS FEMINISTMAMA~ That is EXACTLY the tank I'm talking about~ I am trying to decide what kind of yarn to use : the pattern calls for Plymouth 100 % cotton color: fantasy naturale:


YEP~ I have never made a tank before but I THINK I can actually do this this one..
I am trying to decide what kinda yarn to use b/c I am XL so it would call for 5 skeins of yarn. I have some Misti-cotton I got from the LYS for $10 skein, I love the feel but I don't think I will spend that much on a tank..
I also bought somer bernat cotton tots which is also soft as a possibility and I even thought about Sugar n Cream ~ buying it by the cone from Cotton Clouds b/c they have multiple solid and vaigeated color and it's machine washable/ dryable.. but I concerned it may be WAY too scratchy~

Whad you think::

I'm here!

What is the gauge? Cotton Tots is soooo soft - I would vote for that. Is Cotton Tots considered worsted weight? I would definately say no to Sugar n Cream - unless you were making a very lacy top to go over another top.

I'm going back to check out that pattern again...I would also make an XL, and that might be a great spring/summer project.

Holly :muah: for replying..
I started the camisole in peaches and cream in a vareigated purple/yellow/blue/white and am going to alternate every 1-2 skeins with a solid purple
and I also bought some berant cotton tots in a purple and I bought the April issue of Knit N Style and it has few more tanks .. I am looking at it now so I can decide which pattern to try the bernat on~! :happydance:
