Tiger Lily Tank

Last week was a very good knitting week for me, I finished two WIP's.  I posted about how I finished my Mom's top, and then the next day or so I finished the Tiger Lily Tank Top I was working on.

Some folks might remember that I made myself this skirt in anticipation for summer a couple of weeks ago.  Well, after I made the skirt I decided I needed a white top to go with it.  Right around then I got an email from Lion Brand (how many knitting emails do I get a week?  Too many) Hence my new top was born:

This is me messing around with the effects folder on my photo editor.  It is called "warmify" but just looks like "make redder" to me.

It was a very easy and fast pattern.  I like to have at least one pattern I can just sit and do in front of the tv, and this one was it.  Plus I got to learn the three needle cast off for the straps, and that was fun too.

Of course, now that I'm ready for summer, we are having really dreadful weather.  I guess it is good we are going abroad or I wouldn't get to wear my new creations at all!

Here is where I hop:


  1. Cute top, I love the way the straps cross at the back :)

  2. Very cute top! It looks lovely on you!

  3. wow! you are amazing! Can't believe you finished so much!

  4. No pictures of the skirt and shirt together? You need to get on that. =D

    The top is cute. Every so often Lion Brand puts out a winner like that.

  5. The top looks great!! :D

  6. I love this!!! I've been looking for a great tank top pattern. I'll have to check this one out.

  7. That tank looks fantastic on you, and I love the crossed straps!

  8. Wow, you made that? Beautiful top! Following you - can't wait to read more! :)

    I really like your blog - I'm trying to get mine off the ground and was wondering if you could come check it out and consider following.

    Hope you have an *amazing* day! :)


  9. Great top, I liked the skirt too ;) Thanks so much for sharing and linking up with us! We appreciate it!

  10. Hi New follower from the hop! Hope you will hop over to Girl Tech Divas and follow back!

  11. I really like the top, I'm surprised that is a Lion Brand pattern but every once in a while, they surprise you! I like the back straps especially, it dresses up an otherwise plain top. I may have to queue that!


I love comments almost more than chocolate. Now that is saying something.
