CRAFTS: Tanks A Lot!

Dry Bulb Temperature 114F

Well here’s something we haven’t featured yet – knitted, crocheted or sewn tank tops for the summer! I am in Texas right now, my friend Matt McD was driving from Dallas to Austin to come visit us and yesterday’s Dry Bulb Temperature – not the heat index which is the Wet Bulb (heat + humidity equation) he says –  was 114F – that’s no joke! So if there is ever any time for a craft, it’s now! Read for ladies and girls projects.

*Please click on photos, downloadable links, and check out the web references we provide for additional ideas!

We begin with an Easy Level Knitting project – The TRAPEZE TANK with oversized sequins:
