Work in Progress Wednesday!

I am now also participating in Tami's Work in Progress Wednesday, otherwise known as WIPW.

Here is the Tank I am working on. The pattern is from Plymouth:



Front of tank

This is what it will look like, except that I am using the stockinette side as the "right" side rather than the reverse stockinette:


Tank pattern

I am using the same yarn the pattern calls for:



Yarn for tank S338

This yarn is easy to work with. The only complaint I have is that it has little nubs every so often which cause the stockinette to lay uneven. It is pretty, it has sparkles, but it's not an even knit which can be annoying... oh well, it's coming out okay so we'll see how it looks in the end. That wraps up my first participation in WIPW!

  7. I think by the end of it, you will appreciate the texture, especially if you wearing it with the smooth side out.

  8. Cool tank design, and I love that yarn! It's working up so prettily, too, although I'm sorry it's less even than you might like.

  9. I haven't seen the Plymouth Meteor yarn before but it looks like fun! I am the same way about reverse stockinette needing to be the "wrong" side instead of the right side.

  10. If you are a teacher who encourages in stead of demeans, please come! We have some who don't seem to know who to handle middle schoolers. Not that I would do any better!
