I've had this book since it first came out, but only now have something to show. I've completed two hexagons on the Basalt Tank. I spread them on the floor to photograph and you can see that there were some obstructions, so I took another close up. I'm sorry Carolyn had so much trouble (and anger!) with this pattern, but grateful she went first so I had some heads up about the mistakes.
I did the first two hexagons flat, but have done about 20 rows on the third in the round. I'm doing this on 24" circulars and will switch to magic loop I think when there are fewer stitches. I'm using Classic Elite Premiere (50% Pima Cotton 50% Tencel) in boring brown (because it will match everything else I own).
I've also swatched last night for the Shell Tank with some Debbie Bliss Soho Summer I got at the WEBs Tent Sale. Actually I did the skinny left front piece as my swatch. Then cast on and did the ribbing for the back piece.
I also have yarn already for the spiral scarf and I've been eyeing some Reynolds Rapture for the sweater that looks like it has a sand dollar on the front of it (can't recall the name at the moment). WEBs is discontinuing carrying Rapture and is selling off the last of their stock at 25% off.
