I LOVE IT!!!!!
I finished this fun pattern while on a camping trip and I wore it the day we came home! It’s been finished less than a week and I have already worn it twice.
I really liked the pattern and the only modification that I made was to go slightly longer on the sleeve straps so that the armhole would be a little deeper. I find that today’s patterns typically have armholes that aren’t deep enough for my arms.

The Hempathy yarn washes up great. I washed in the machine with cold water and dried in the drier. Such easy care.

I love both of the tank patterns in this book. Actually, I love many patterns in this book. mfuesel and I reviewed it on our Two Ewes Fiber Adventures podcast (episode 21). So I wanted to start a project from it as we were recording. Dorthelia was the one that best matched a yarn (type and amount) I had in the stash. Made the swatch while recording, washed and blocked it and it works so I’m starting!
