Dabble In: Knitting

Last week Nona was blogging about the Summer of the Dabble. What better month than August to have a little dabble in this and that?

In solidarity with Nona, I'm embarking on my first-ever dabble week (or so). Seven (or so) days of knitting, yarn, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

In honor of this, I'm going to dabble in blogging. Posts will be every other day.

First? The knitting, of course. I have managed to dabble in the Tiger Tank:

I finished the waist decreases and increases, and I'm working my way toward the short-row shaping. I had better get out a tape measure soon. Don't want to knit past the mark.

My concerns about the yarn's pooling? They're gone. The yarn pools, it begins to stripe, and then it fades into random lines. I like it.

 

i love this color! it's gonna make a great tank :)

I think I'm going to do dabbling the rest of the month of August and sink a lot of here-and-there skeins from stash. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Loving the tank.

Tank's looking good!

I'm glad you're pleased with how it's knitting up. There's nothing worse than knitting along with that uncomfortable feeling at the back of your stomach.

What a great idea. Embrace hte freedom of summer, etc. Can't wait to see what you do with free rein.
