So far in my crochet, I've pretty much just stuck to do amigurumi's, cozies, scarfs, and hats.Today I've finally decided to start a project that I've been wanting to do for forever, the Short and Sweet Bolero in the book The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller. I've never made anything like it, but I thought I'd give it a try. Here are some Flickr photos so you can see what I'm talking about.
I went over to the super slow site (sorry but it is sloooow) Knitpicks and picked up their Shine Sport Yarn in the color "Harbor". I think in person it will be more blue then this swatch, at least from what I've seen.
I swear, picking out colors is the hardest part! The pattern calls for 100% mercerized cotton yarn, but I've seen some great FO's using this yarn.Besides, it's only $2.95 a skein, so if it doesn't work...it's a great practice one!
I'm still putting the finishing touches on my Ami snowboarder, and I need to make another ami beer bottle since I only wrote down half the pattern; before I put the patterns up for sale.
I've also got some more ideas for patterns (and Christmas presents!), but I need to just sit and focus on ONE project at a time...I swear I have crochet ADD ;)
