KnitPicks Shine Worsted
Do you think Shine Worsted would be okay for a tank top or is there a better yarn I should use?
Thank you.

I think it would be fine. You can use any yarn you want in this project. I'm using the sport weight Shine, but it means I'll have to use a smaller needle. :rollseyes:

No comment on the shine worsted because I haven't used it, but just wanted to say that I HAVE used the green apple color, in the regular shine yarn, and I love love love that colour!!!

Now I am soooooooooo mad at Hildie, and Knitwit too, its all your fault! I went to knitpicks to order two more skeins of my shine sport, and was going to use the double-secret probation shipping code and everything, and then I looked at the shine worsted, and one of the colors was crying to come home to me, just sobbing! So I ended up buying that too! And now it can come home and be friends with all the cottonease that I really should be using on this project. Just what I need. More yarn!
