I'm glad I got this tank finished before the end of summer! I instantly loved this pattern when I saw it- talk about a great summer staple. I wanted something bright and fresh. I originally would have like a white and tangerine orange sort of stripe, but couldn't find the right shade of orange that I had in mind. This bright fuchsia is a good compromise, though.

I love this tank, it's exactly what a wanted- a classic summer tank that goes with everything and feels effortless. I feel like I could knit a whole bunch of these for summer in different colours and be happy. But a word of advice, if you are knitting this- don't weave in your ends BEFORE doing the armhole and neck edging. I can't tell you how many times I went to pick up a stitch and accidentally unpicked a woven in end. This also tells me that I should probably weave in my ends a bit more aggressively, though.
