My new “masterpiece”

summer top with crochet

My new summer top

I love making things for myself – this was such a project. It is made of 100% silk yarn, I knitted it then added the crochet edges to it. I’m really proud of it as it required a lot of patience from me – especially where the two colors intertwin. This image came out really funny – as if I had that big belly -maybe it is giving me a hint? Anyways, as you can see it was quite windy and the sun was shining at the same time so it was really difficult to shoot a good picture – and I was eager to share it to my subscribers so didn’t go out again to get a new one.   If you would like to check out what I have on offer you can do it so here: Crochet For You

Now I am returning to my work in progress pieces – I have several actually – seems to be a habit of mine… I want to finish a crochet headband, a bra and the pair of earrings (one is ready – so just have to do the other one) this afternoon. Surely I also have a knitting project in progress which I do when I have to travel. I live in a big city and getting to places takes up time – why not use it efficiently?

 

 

 

IMG_0827[1]As for this one…. well, it was supposed to be a woman’s summer hat I crocheted for myself from a pattern – well as you can see it turned out to be so small that it maybe can cover the top of my head… Have you already had a similar experience when following a pattern? So I re-purposed its function: I’ll have to make the last row and it will be a table coaster.
