FO! (But not the usual type!)

This is one for the history books - I have finished a completely crochted object. I wanted to try the new Cestari Fine Merino yarn I'd just gotten in at the shop. Amanda & I had seen this cute little crocheted halter top at TNNA. So, I thought to myself, "It's a smaller project. Maybe I could do it."

I jumped in feeling pretty sure of myself after my recent Granddaughter Socks experience. Every time I finished a row I had the feeling something was wrong. I would think. And think. And think. Then I would realize what the pattern really meant for me to do. Out the old row would come and I would try that row again. I'm pretty sure I crocheted the equivalent of 2 tops because each section required two tries to get it right.

When my youngest daughter saw this work in progress she decided it was kind of cute; maybe. Ok! I decided I would just make it for her. This was daring because I had no guarantee she would really like it when all was said & done. But as it turned out, I think she likes it!

Wow, that is so awesome that you tackled crochet!! That looks awesome and it is just so cute!

Lovely! I can't wait to see it in person.

When Victoria saw the picture, she asked about her crocheted halter I worked on that for a while this evening. But I have a feeling it will move to the back burner tomorrow when the first Mystery Stole Clue is posted.

I'm not sure what is next...Josephine if I ever have time to think straight and really start a real project. This was was fun & not so hard after all!
