Crochet~ I think I get it!

 I have been determined to learn how to do this crochet thing.  I have wanted to learn for the longest time. Ok, so it took me a long time to “get it”, but I think I am good to go now.

I thought this little top was so cute, and I new just the girl for it~

I found this cute pattern here from Jessi’s Patterns so, I just went for it! It was fun. I used the same type of yarn as she did, Caron Brites, but I am not crazy about that yarn. Also, my crochet seems loose. So, definitely lots of room to improve there. I first tried this pattern with Rowan Cotton, and I love the color, however it seems heavy. I just need to finish the straps, then I can really compare. 

  In the mean time~ here is a close up of my little flower detail.

 ~ and the back detail, I love the little vintage green buttons.

That is my first real crochet project, yay Crochet!!


Zephyr Style… New knitting project.. got the bug again.  To pick up and knit. I am so bad to start a project and walk away halfway done. This is what happened to my knitty project.  I hate to have unfinished objects laying around.
So, I hope to get back to that soon, but in the meantime,  I found a great site Zephyr Style and I thought I would try their Twitterpatted purse…this new project is adorable. So, I started it Saturday.
Here is how far I have gotten.

I love the colors in this yarn and it knits up quickly. I believe I will be done very soon as this garter stitch does get a bit monotnous. It is good though when several people are talking all at once.  I had this cotton yarn  in my stash and I think I have some cute coordinating fabric for the lining.  All I  will need to finish it off will be the purse handle.

I hope to have a finished project soon.
