I decided to crochet myself a summery top. The pattern was actually free because I bought some (a lot of) yarn to make a blanket. I couldn't wait to get started. Look, I even used the correct yarn called for by the pattern!
Do you like the tiny bunch of tiny wild flowers in the tiny pink vase?
Before we go any further, let me assure you that at no time did I intend to wear this top as it is worn by the model.
The pattern worked up so quickly. The back was done in no time.
And here it is, finished and being modelled by me. Sorry, the pattern model was unavailable.
I just knew that yarn would be a perfect match for this scarf.
Some of these foxgloves are actually taller than me. I had to crop the picture because I didn't dare let you see any more of me!
As usual, I had to make the top longer than what was specified in the pattern. Especially the sleeves. My arms are of simian proportions.
Here's a better picture of the wee wild flowers.
This was the first of the sweet pea to be cut.
I've been able to cut lots more since then. The sweet pea was late starting to flower but going well now.
This is just a bunch of flowers cut from the garden. They are sitting out in the garage hence the random items in the background like a toolbox!
All the best everyone.
