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!

It was so easy, and so much fun! Usually knitting in the round is so tedious, endlessly going around in circles circles circles. But this one was interesting, with the waistline shaping and all!

And loads of fun doing the lace at the neckline. I modified the armhole edging or border. Pattern called for st st right up to the edge! ST ST rolls, and some other knitters were adding CROCHET edges to it, along the armholes and along the neckline. Ack.
