Tops, Tanks, and Tees KAL || Cast On

Today is the official start date of luvinthemommyhood's Tops, Tanks, and Tees Knit Along! I normally sit out on knit alongs because of my workload but this time, I've found myself between projects while waiting for yarn to arrive and I am so excited to be able to participate! 


I've decided to knit another Gemini! Since the pattern was published I've seen so many amazing modifications to this top, it's inspiring and makes me want to knit it all over again with my own mods. 


I just happen to have 3 gorgeous skeins of Tanis Fibre Arts Yellow Label in Olive that would be perfect for this project! I plan on changing the sleeves to make them fitted and longer, 3/4 length is my plan. I'd like to knit until I run out of yarn because wasting any of this lovely stuff would be a crime. 

I've swatched in the round and I am bang on! Here I go!!!


How about you? Will you be joining the KAL this time? What are you knitting?

    1. Yay! I really hope you join in Julie! Tops, tanks, and tees are so much less of a commitment than sweaters it seems, mine is flying off the needles!

  6. Nice! I have already started this project, with some linen yarn. But now I will wait for you and see what you will do with the sleeves. Because I didn't really like the way they are now. Want them more fitted.
