Knitting Nature, Norah Gaughan, Roundabout Leaf TankThis is my first WIP (work in progress) after my return from Romania and my second project from Norah's book: Knitting Nature. The first project was Droplet Hat. The hat for a swap on Ravelry but I am making this lovely tank for myself.

I am using a Turkish yarn from Linate Okiteks, CotoLin Gold: 50% cotton and 50% acrylic. It was a true bargain as it's a discontinued yarn and the seller told me it was the last batch. I just adore the color: yellow peach, very close to the skin color.

My nickel plated KnitPicks interchangeble circular needles are perfect for this type of yarn.

Oh yes that one is on my list too! I wanted to say thanks to your comment on my Urban Aran sweater on the blog the other day. I didn't know how to email you back. I like how it came out and it's really ok with the red hair, huh? It was a gamble but I like it.
