Finished TTTKAL Togue Pond

I finished this about a week ago, which was technically past the original deadline, but I’m happy to have a new summer tank to wear. togue finished-2I love participating in Shannon’s knitalongs. I only learned about them a couple of summers ago. It really motivates me to get a project finished in a timely manner. It’s been a bit harder to have as much knitting time with two kiddos, but I’m taking advantage of baby sleep time to knit as much as I can. Knitting and baby cuddling are way more important than household chores, am I right? togue finished-4I used the size 42″ numbers in Togue Pond to get around a 37″ bust because I was working at a smaller gauge using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Spryte. I would have loved to make this in linen like the pattern calls for, but I’m trying to use more of what I have on hand.  I spaced out the decreases farther and added some additional ones to get to the size I wanted. togue finished-3I love the clean lines in the shaping on this pattern, and I love the slight hi-lo of the top. togue finishedI could definitely see myself making another one of these.

Do y’all know about the Summer Sweater Knitalong on Shannon’s blog? It usually starts at the very end of July and goes until the end of September. I can’t wait! I did allow myself to buy some yarn for this one. I plan to make Marshal by Norah Gaughan. I ordered some Cascade 220 Fingering in Olive Oil to make it. In the meantime I have some other projects to keep me busy. More on those soon!

  1. So beautiful! I’ve been looking at the tank section of ravelry trying to pick a pattern for some time now, I might have to make this the one! I’ve never used cotton before, but there’s a first time for everything. Thanks for sharing!
