FO: Lacey Summer Tank
Well, it's named "The Lacy Summer Tank", but obviously, since I've knit it with wool, I won't be wearing it for summer! I'm going to wear it underneath a cardigan of the same yarn, wearing them like a 'twin set'.

Pattern: Lacy Summer Tank (free)
She's also posted it in Ravelry, here.

My yarn: "Leftover" Debbie Bliss Luxury Donegal Tweed (4.22 balls, or 405 yds)
Color: 02 Celery
My Ravelry notes, in you're interested in my modifications.

I like this tank pattern for two reasons: the lacy hem and neckline; and it uses worsted weight yarn. So many tanks are so plain, and use dk weight.

The lace was very very easy to memorize, even for me, not being a lace knitter usually!
(hats off to lace knitters! all those gorgeous shawls!)

I prefer flat knitting (easier to block), but this one is knit 'in-the-round' up to the armholes,
for those of you who prefer seamless knitting, you'll love it!
