Crochet Challenge Top

Ok, I have to admit again I often start projects and never complete them.  This is a personal challenge that I am trying to work on.  Since I’ve been told to stop jumping from project to project I challenged myself to complete the Simple Lace Summer Top on from CrochetNCrafts.  I loved the fact that this top looked classy and simple without shaping.

As the pattern stated you can use any yarn and hook size and I did just that.  As a further challenge for me, I used a thinner cotton yarn and went up a hook size.  I’ve never worked with Bernat Cotton-ish yarn and it was sale, yay!  Four skeins of Cotton Harvest (Burnt Orange) was used to complete my Crochet Challenge Top while I listened/watched the series of Scandal again.  That Olivia Pope is a force to be reckoned with.

Boom, pow, in about two weeks this lovely and airy top was created.  It took me actually three weeks to make because I was working on other projects in between.  This yarn will be perfect for any summertime top and will accommodate my many hot flashes.  It sure does suck getting old!

I started crocheting again after many years. Back then when I thought of the word crochet a granny square comes to mind first. No one was wearing crocheted clothes and the fad of crocheting died. I picked up a hook and some yarn and I was on my way. No more granny square blankets for me. Thanks to the internet you can learn anything you want and if you search just a little bit further you will find people who share your passion. I immediately I became enthralled in Pinterest, Ravelry and Facebook crochet groups. If I ran into a snag there was YouTube, I can learn a new stitch from a live person. So two years later here I am, a certified crochet addict and lover of yarn.

If you are a die hard crocheter you will understand. I have so many WIP’s going on at one time until I confuse myself. The attack of the yarn has made it to my home. Yarn has found it’s way from my computer room, bedroom, and now it rests in the family room. Pretty funny having my son’s friends over and they are moving yarn to sit down and I provide the entertainment of showing them my finished work. I think that’s the real reason why they want to come by so much.

To combat the many unfinished projects I decided to keep an online presence of what I do, make and find on the web.
