Fibers on Friday: Pink Tank Complete!

Two of these tank tops under my belt. Oh, I love them! This girl loves her pink tank. For hers I use Berroco Weekend yarn and I like it more than the Berroco Vintage I used on the purple one. The Vintage is really fuzzy and pills a lot. I've already had to shave it although I haven't even washed it yet! NOT good for children's wear.

About the purple one: you may have heard me mention that I couldn't, for the life of me, get my girl to wear it! I was so upset having put all that work into it and she refused to wear it out of the house! I'd ask her and she'd say, "But, are we going anywhere? Because I don't want people to laugh at me"! What?! So, finally.....FINALLY....she wears it one day and LOVES it. So, she of course wants to wear it every day. Fine! No problem! I'm so happy! I even let her wear it on the day we leave for a camping trip.

Wrong Answer!!!

We arrive at our campsite and the girls proceed to ride their bikes and explore. So why does my sweet one decide to play right near the trailer hitch and get grease all over her purple knitted tank top???!!! AAAAGGGGHHHH!

I think I got it all out. I used Dawn dish soap because that's all I had in the camper.

Have you been knitting? I was beyond thrilled to have you guys link up some projects a few weeks back. If you have any more projects, or progress made lately, please link up again!


  1. Those are really cute tank tops, and very adorable models. I hope all of the grease came out of the purple one.

    I took my market bag with my on a road trip. It is still a wip. I also made my first scrubbies this week.

  2. Ack! Stains on a $4 tank from Target is one thing but grease on something you knitted? I'm glad you got most of it out. I'd probably cry! I love it though! Great work.

  3. Beautiful work on a cute model. I wish I knew how to knit. It's something on my list of things to learn.

    I’m having a new link party “Cheap Thrills Thursday” starting tomorrow. It’s for creative ideas that cost under $20. If you have a project you’d like to share, I’d love for you to stop by and join in!


What's on your mind, friend?
