spidery tank

Friday, June 5, 2009

I finished up the Spidery tank late Monday night and by the time I had dealt with all of the fiddly details on the neckline and straps, I almost through it out the window in frustration. In the tank's defense, I was up too late, really tired and should have stopped while I was ahead. The only problem that I ran into with this pattern was that I needed to add about 3 inches to each strap to lengthen it. This is definitely not a big deal and a very simple modification, but when I operate on little sleep, it's not a pretty sight. On the bright side of things, I did manage to watch Conan's Tonight Show debut, which was hilarious!

This was a fun project to knit and I really enjoyed working with addi turbo lace needles for the first time. Everything slides so quickly on those needles and they do help me knit a lot faster because I'm not always sliding my project around the circular needle. I don't normally wear tops like this, so I'm still getting used to the style, but I do like the idea of being able to wear knitwear in the summer.

Here are the details:
Pattern: Spidery Tank Interweave Knits Summer '09
Yarn: Adrienne Vittadini Dianna
Color: 403
Yards: 609 (7 balls)
Needles: 7 and 10

  1. Wow, the lace pattern is pretty. This looks like a lot of work and you should be proud that you finished it.

  2. Very pretty - yay for summer knits!

  3. I love it! It looks great on you! I just cast on for this, too. But I'm using cheap cotton-ease yarn - after seeing a lot of people on Ravelry used that. Because, really, I might be too old to wear something like this. LOL

  4. Great Tank! I noticed on your side bar you are reading Girl with the Pearl Earing....I just finished it about 2 weeks ago. I loved it, I have recommended it to everyone. I love Vermeer and this book was a great (historical fiction) story about him. Let me know what you think of it!

  5. Wow - it looks great. I'm amazed by all your knitting!

  6. Cute! You have been so productive lately!

  7. Cute. I get that way late at night too. Sewing things all wrong and such.

  8. Boy, it turned out cute. Great for a layered look. Now that school is done, I am looking forward to being able to stay up late should crafting inspiration hit!

  9. It looks great Rebekah! I love seeing all of your creations...even if they do make me feel like a crafting bum. You seem to create 5 for every one I start lol.

  10. Very nice! I'm like that too if I stay up too late, lol.
