A month or so ago I went to check out the yarn sales at Lidl's, and came away with 200g of cotton. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it at the time, but a tank top for the girls was at the top of the list. I have another 200g of a different cotton, in very similar colours I can use to make a second one. Yes, there must always be a second one.Because I like nothing more than free, I chose the Ramona pattern. It helps that it is also adorable, and I like to knit cute things. I'm making this for the girls, and going up a size, because if I don't I know I will be sorry. Plus, this is Scotland, so let's face it, they will most likely be wearing it over a shirt for most of the year. They've given the pattern and yarn their approval, so here I go!
The pattern is very easy, just a small diamond made with purls. It is enough to keep me interested, and easy enough to do with a bit of distraction around me. I'll be doing it with thick colour stripes, because around here we like stripes (and I don't have enough of just one colour).
That's it for me this week, check out the hops here:
