Current Status

So, in procrastinating the writing of an email (oh, and showering. Eww), I've decided to post the status of all of my works-in-progress. Here they are:

A) my crochet version of the circular shrug. I examined the knitted version found here and turned it into crochet. I'm in the process of adding sleeves--I was almost done one, and decided I needed to add some more decreases, so I ripped it out. Here it is sans sleeves though:

I don't know if anyone cares about the process, but I made a big rectangle--20 hdc in the back loop, sc across in both loops, 20 hdc in the back loop. Afterwards, I tried sewing it together, but it seemed weird, so I added a triangle shape to one end on each side, and then sewed together (see picture).

B) the bathing suit coverup from here. I'm using patons grace in snow and a G/6 hook.


C) the motif top. Here is the first motif. I'm not entirely sure about the colour now--I might go look for a different one somewhere else. I don't know yet! It takes about an hour per motif though, and my fingers start to hurt so bad halfway through each one. I have to do 35, so I kind of want to be sure I like the colour before I continue. We'll see.

I really like the design of the motif for your motif top... it's so pretty! I also like the colour, but I'm highly biased when it comes to pink :) I envy your nimble fingers, Rianne!
