Starting Tank Top

I chose the Tank Top from Leigh Radford's One Skein book as my next project. It's two panels sewn together at the center front and back. One panel is the knit side & the other panel is the purl side. I'm using Alpaca with A Twist's Fino in Seaglass from my stash. Here's today's progress:





I'd probably be bored with all stockinette stitches, but this yarn is so soft, it's a pleasure to knit! Ran into Stitch DC after work trying to find the Addi Turbo Lace needles - but no luck (& no patience to order them). But all was not lost cause look what I got instead:



OMG!!!! It's Lorna's Laces - Helen's Lace in blackberry. I am in no way a yarn snob (had never even heard of Helen's Lace) but I swear my heart started racing & forehead sweating when I spotted it (lol). There are no words to describe how it feels. What will I make? Who knows - but dang it's gonna be beautiful.

Your tank is coming along nicely. I've come to luv doing stockinette stitches while traveling. Now off to look for Leigh Radford's One Skein book.
