I don’t have a huge stash of knits at the moment, but I thought the blocked version of the tank would be a fun opportunity to play with stripes. Matched up stripes just make me so happy, and all of these little right angles stacked on top of one another…sigh. Next time I’m doing a color blocked version like my friend Erin did here, because I love stripes, but I love color blocking.
My only regret is that I wish I had attached the pocket to his left side instead of his right side. I have loved the versions of the tank where the pocket lines up with the diagonal line, but with the tiny stripes going in different directions, and trying to match them all up, and line up the pocket…I just dropped the ball. Plus I think the pocket draws away from those stripes a bit. Bah!! Live and learn. I still might switch it to the other side.
It fit well for bending to read various pieces of information about cacti and didn’t show off his belly even with his arms over his head. Perfect.
It was cold and rainy here again this weekend (come ON London!) so we headed to one of our very favorite family hang outs, Kew Gardens. Kew is absolutely stunning on the outside, but if you need pictures of a tank top when it’s 60 degrees a rain forest glass house is your friend. The perfectly diffused light will make the photographer in you happy, and your kids just might even sit together and smile.
But just for a minute.
Thanks for having me Laura!!
