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!!
I 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.
