Roundabout Time it’s Done!

Another finished item to show you!  This has been in my queue for years, and then in my project basket for several more weeks than it should have (and that was entirely my fault because um….I lost it.  Yeah, see previous post about admitting you have a problem).


This is the Roundabout Leaf Tank by Norah Gaughan.  She has to be one of my all-time favorite designers.  I adore the way she pulls inspiration from nature and uses clever geometry to achieve her patterns.


The yarn is a linen blend a coworker gave me.  When she handed me the bag full, my eyes lit up and I knew immediately it was going to be perfect for this project.  It is the kick in the keester I needed to get started.


Mods: I made it a 33″ bust instead of 36″, and I went down a couple needle sizes.  This meant I had to add more spirals, which only became tedious after the third. I also changed the straps. I felt that the way they were constructed in the pattern seemed a bit matronly, so I opted for a racerback.


Overall, I am very happy about the product, and I am glad to have crossed something off my list!


And it’s going to be a lovely addition to my summer wardrobe – if only the temperature would reach above 65F.
