Tank Tops and friends

Today is April 11th and we are getting snow in Minnesota today, BUT I'm thinking of spring and summer designs. I swatched and ripped, then crocheted the whole tank top and then ripped again, ahrrr....(knit and crochet designers does this sound familiar?!)

The bottom Round Neck Tank Top looks too close to another design by another designer, so I ripped it. Then I played with the Square Neck Tank, with a key hole center. But hey, I'm getting smart, I didn't weave in the ends yet, I might rip again!

Here is Karen
(one of crochet students at 3 Kittens)
and her fab scarf, you can't see the bottom design but it is beautiful!

The Fantastic Ms. Kay
and her lovely version of my Fuchsia and Blues Jacket that was in the winter issue of Interweave Crochet Magazine. Ms. Kay works at my son's pre-school, she knits, crochets, and is constantly in a good mood!

Thanks for stopping by the Knotty Generation!

I REALLLY love the Round Neck Tank, Pam. The shell design on the yoke is stunning.

Hah! Snow? It's 90 degrees here in Los Angeles. This is a freaky hot's supposed to be in the 70's. Ack! We can't wear any of our knitted or crocheted items unless they're cotton!!
