Cast-On: Tank Stream

That’s quite the title, right?  I mean, what does it even mean?

A couple of weeks ago I was watching the Dingo Dyeworks video podcast on Youtube (it’s one of my faves, by the way.  Petah creates the most unbelievable colourways!) when I saw Petah showing off Meg Gadsbey’s new shawl design – Tank Stream – my eyes almost popped out of my head!

I immediately bought Meg’s design on Ravelry and then the mission began to find the right yarn.  Dingo Dyeworks have put together gorgeous packs that I really wanted, but I didn’t want to wait for the postage, and I didn’t want to be hit with customs charges at the door, so I went to Love Knitting and ordered some sweet georgia superwash DK in Mist.

As soon as the yarn arrived I couldn’t wait to start.  It was one of those days when I was counting the seconds until I could finish work so I could wind the yarn and cast on.

I just noticed that my needles match my yarn!  Those sorts of coincidences give me the warm fuzzies.  I do love my zings, especially the colours.  They’re all bright and colourful.

So now I’m busy listening to the S-Town podcast while knitting Tank Stream.  Life is good!

Tanks Stream is available on Ravelry
