Design in Progress


I'm working on a new design, which isn't quite top secret, so I thought I'd blog about it a bit! It's another summery tank, and I'm hoping to have it completed and ready for launch early July. This is the teaser photo I'll leave you with:
Purple Tank 2
 I can't say enough great things about this Silver Label Tanis Fiber Arts 100% mulberry silk yarn. Okay, it's not super cheap, but it feels like absolute heaven. I'd probably be finished this already if I didn't take so many breaks to stop and squish the knitted fabric, and rub it against my cheek. And even G was touching it and exclaiming, 'what's this made of? It's amazing!' It's just incredible.

You can SEE how lovely the yarn is and I can already tell that the tank will be equally lovely. You already know that I'll be knitting your first tank design starting in July so now I'll have to add this new one to my queue!

That yarn looks like it would be scrumptious!
