Summer Swing Tank
:D Last night I finished Allysa's Summer Swing Tank 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 entry. Completed thus far is Kidlet Tank, Allysa Halter and Short Snort Tank. Yet to be done are Mission Tank, GF Swing Coat 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.

: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
