June 03, 2004



My bay tank is complete but it is too big. (see my 5/26 blog post)

Jody, also knitting along, is meeting me for dinner tonight and lending me her ball winder so I can frog the whole tank and start over.

Second verse, same as the first.


I wanted to let you know I completed my Chickami tank. I'll be starting another one in a few weeks.


Still tankin'! I'm proceeding slowly, so I just finished the back side increases, and heading for the armholes. New pix to come. I'm already planning a second tank project...how optimistic is that?


I'm still poking along on the ribby Cecil tank, but I've sort of lost my zeal for her. The yarn is so splitty!


Finished the goddess! Pics on my page. On a side note, finished Chamomile too! More tanks a-comin'!


Just starting Vera... thanks for adding me!


I finished the back of the Vogue Giotto tank. Had to change the decreases to make it lok right. Sooo excited to wear it. The Giotto is so sift and pretty!
I'm working on getting my blog up - any help is paareciated. I want to put some pics of the tank up for you to see!


I finished the back of the Vogue Giotto tank. Had to change the decreases to make it look right. The decreases (all bind offs) in the pattern were messy - at least mine were! :)
Sooo excited to wear it. The Giotto is so soft and pretty!
I'm working on getting my blog up - any help is appreciated. I want to put some pics of the tank up for you to see!


I am starting over on my tank this weekend. I made a mistake and decided it would be better just to start fresh. This way I can also (hopefully) fix the rolling problem I was having.


My Lavender & Lace tank is complete. You can see it here http://goddess1.typepad.com/i_hide_yarn/2004/06/lavender_lace_t.html


Still putting off sewing the side seams on my Shapely, but otherwise it's done. After knitting this, I think I'm going to do something else with my Microspun...the yards and yards of stockinette stitch bored me to tears.

My tank is coming along, slowly but slowly. I'm having to stop every 3-6 rows and spin some more, so that makes things a...little more of a challenge. The waist decreases are done and I'm almost up to the bust increases - roughly halfway. I'm starting on some angora for the hearts this week.


My Mama Tank is complete. It was not without its trials, but I made it through. Pictures and laments can be found on my blog (http://bigsister.typepad.com). The completed piece is modelled in the June 6th entry.


Tank is finished. Not knittin' with cotton again this summer. I'm a WOOL pig. It was fun to knit with y'all. Thank Nathania for hosting the KAL. Fun to see what everyone else is knitting up.


My tank is done. I have pictures and summary on my website (see sidebar under Knit-Alongs). I may knit another tank, still wondering about yarn and pattern. Thanks for hosting Nathania, this was my first knit-along! Fun project.


Finished my Giotto tank -it's a little roomy around the armholes. I wish I had knitted it a size down! I loved knitting with the Giotto, I may have to do another one. You can see the finished tank on my (pitiful!) blog. Plus, if you can help me get my blog organized - that would be great!! http://jacqknits.blogspot.com
I am starting the Chickami in purple and cream Berocco Cotton Twist in the next day or two - I just have to figure out how I want to do the striping.


Hi, N ~ Yesterday I started a ribbed cotton tank for my tiny toddler. (She's three now; should I stop calling her that, now that she's potty-trained and speaking in four-syllable words?) I'll ask her to help me think of a name for it! Meanwhile, I won't cast on for my ChicKami until the Sitcom's done ~


I've completed the back of my chevron tank, and I'm nearly at 7 inches on the front. Things are rockin right along.



I've just joined. Pattern is Fiber Trends Basic Tank..Yarn is Classic Elite Flash in Clementine


I am very close to FINALLY finishing the back of my back. No actual pics of anything, nor have I been talking about it. It's probably about 40% done.

Though, I have been working on a modified Cherry Twist (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring03/PATTcherries.html)... Size 7 circs with Sugar 'n' Creme cotton - and that's about 80% done.


I emailed you today about my tank. I've finished the back and am about 1/3 of the way through the front. It's the Batz tank from Plassard's adult summer book using Mayotte and P'Tite Fleur. Earlier pictures are here: http://mythreadedbliss.typepad.com/my_threaded_bliss/2004/week23/index.html.

Post! post! Post! The list is just going to get longer.....


The GFA shell is on hold as I make my fourth attempt at seaming it up; darn those reverse stockinette stripes, anyway. I've also got about half of Joy from 'Tape Thing' finished, but that's also on hold while I bang my head against the wall over the armhole decreases. Grrr!


I finished one of my tanks. I changed to Ginger as opposed to the Elderflower.


I started mine.. I had to order some turbos off the internet because bamboo doea not like mission falls cotton (sticky). I am kind of starting to understand the whole wool craze. So I seem to be WAY behind everyone else but I cast on last night. I have to frog it but it knits up fast.
