This is it. The tank that spawned my ten week get-fit plan.
It’s done, which is sort of appropriate, since yesterday was the end of my ten weeks for completing the tank and losing enough weight to fit into it.
Even though I accomplished my goals, I’m not overjoyed with the tank. I think I should have done wider straps, and will probably go back and redo them. The reason I’m less than overjoyed with the straps probably has a lot to do with the weakness in the ten week plan, which was a commitment to lose weight (and I did! 19.5 pounds!) but did not result in any kind of increase in exercise. I do Pilates one or two times a week, but it’s clear to me, looking at this picture, that I might need a new ten week plan aimed at lifting weights and maybe even, horrors, going back to running. Maybe after we get the last of the kids back to school, I’ll come up with a new plan.
I’m also less the overjoyed with the color. Don’t get me wrong — I love the colors, I’m just not sure I’ll wear them in fall, and I intend to wear this tank a lot, probably over a tee-shirt, this fall. So, I’m thinking about over-dyeing the tank to get more fall tones. The yarn is Colinette’s Giotto, a rayon ribbon yarn, so it should over-dye well.
Even with those minor disappointments, I’m tickled by the results of the ten week plan!
