I am working on the Blissful Blue Top from Lion Brand. So far, it is easy-peasy. I think that if I finish it, I will have to find a backup tank to work on. That won't be difficult, since I have a few in my cue on Ravelry. Laughing

I'm not joining in with this one as I have plenty of summer tops and a list of 'wannaknits' as long as my arm, not to mention WIPs.

But I'll be watching. Very Happy

I want to join this one, but still looking for a pattern that fits the picture in my head. Will report on any progress.

I'm going to give the Sprigs Top from Cascade Yarns a try. I'm going to use TLC's Cotton Plus yarn in their Spruce colorway as I have some in my stash and I'm trying desperately to stashbust.

I finished my top, but it is, shall we say, a bit too form fitting. I don't really think it's me. I will probably frog it and try again, but not right now. I have another tank top that I have the yarn for, so I will be working on that one.

I like the gauge I got, but I just need a wee bit more room. I will make the next size up, and it should be fine. Luckily, it was very easy knitting. It really only took me about five days total, which is fairly amazing for me.

Oh I love that one. It's really pretty. But, I've learned I can't follow Drops patterns. Rolling Eyes

I think I'm going to sit this one out also. I am going to concentrate on my list for June.

Beabea, that's a lovely pattern.

Knittingmama, I'm sorry yours didn't work out the way you wanted.

I'm possibly going to join you in a week or so, depending how my other projects go.
