I decided Roulette was appropriate for this tank, b/c I was definitely playing Russian Roulette while making it, using 2 different patterns...lol. Totally love it and ooohhh so soft. Here I am just returning home from work and grabbed my dd to take a pic.. lucky timing. I received several compliments on this tank, and man-o-man was I cheesing. It was a lil comical, b/c the compliments were "oh I really like that sweater with your suit and especially the holes..." In turn I responded oh the eyelet... why Thank You.....lol

Sheila, beautiful job!!! You should be so proud of yourself. I can tell you from experience, you are a designer in the making, and can't wait to see what you do in the future. Shoot, what am I talking about, you're already a crochet designer, you just have to write the patterns out. (hint, hint!! I'm waiting. lol!!)

Virtuous said...

Yes Roulette is a PERFECT name for her!! Haha! :op

Love how you put a blazer with Roulette. I plan to do that with my Coquette when she is all done! :o)

I am just so amazed how you turn out wonderful tank after wonderful tank! Where do you keep all of these and how do you decide what to wear every day!?! Thanks for sharing another beauty!

Sheila said...

Thank You. I am such a Tank Fiend and tend to wear Tanks throughout the year with my suits. So you know what I'll be knitting...lol

@ Virtuous - Nothing like a simple tank to dress up a suit... Thanks

@ Andrea - Crochet Designer... love the title. I seem to have a knack for trying to design but not write... really need to get a handle on that.. Thanks.


@ Carolyn - I have a large storage container to hold all my tops, tanks & blouses and it doubles as a window seat, I made a cushion to put on top of the lid.. LOL. My daughter teases me about being Mommy Dearest.. I will freak out if I find one of my tops hanging in the closest..lol
As far as deciding what to wear, if someone is wearing a color that grabs me I use that color to decide what to wear the next day, if I don't have a suit in that color or near that color, I pull out a tank in that color or as of recently started making skirts in colors that I see others wearing. Thanks

You are really talented. I love how you change patterns. In a way you are already a designer!

You are WORKING Roulette! It looks great with that jacket, too. I can't believe how far you've come with knitting already. Fantastic!

Sheila said...

Thanks so much. I really chuckled when someone would mention holes...lol. I'm on to my next project which is another simple tank.. and hopefully will move on to something challenging... if I don't stall b/c of fear.

Boy Sheila, you stay busy! Another fine creation you've whipped up. You know I love anything lacy. I'll bet you were 'cheezing'. You should be very proud. Great job!
