I ''finished'' it sometime in early 2012 and then it just hibernated in a basket or a box as I could not decide whether to edge it or not.
The DK Calypso was too soft and fluffy, it will not look crisp , another blue was too bright more of a dark royal so I used the Dark navy aran cotton at the far left above.
On front edge, pocket edge and cuffs I worked it a few times in different ways until I got it :
not too loose and wavy ( too many stitches), not too tight and sparse ( too few stitches)
but just right and IDENTICAL on both fronts, on both sleeves and on both pockets.
Not as easy as it seems and I undid and reworked the edgings until it was the best I could do.
Or driving along the Amalfi coastline? I'm thinking white jeggings, white fit flop sandals and navy bold needle-lace camisole. Chic Italian style?!
Another little project took my fancy today: below is a wee make-up bag that I got given as it would be thrown out, it's tremendously useful as it's an ideal size BUT it's bug-ugly!
This is DROPS sock yarn and I am using a 4 mm hook working 5 treble bobbles and then 3 dc and then a row of dc, after which I stagger the bobbles into the middle stitch of those three dc.
And my final CURRENT crochet project on-the go is the tank top with slanting rows from Interweave. I have one side done and am working on the back now.
I'm using KATIA variegated cotton in blue-greens and a 4 mm hook.
Pattern by Linda Skuja. But I have changed the neckline and sleeve cap.
Trying to take the photo, it's just after 2 am- Lucy got up and was fed up with waiting, she wants me to go to bed so she can come too!
