Lacy Crochet Top-Crocheting Finished






Here it is-still need the snap for the inside, which is why I won't take a pic of Elena in it til I get one (or the inside part will just fall down). I don't think the bathrobe tie type thing will work cause it will cause it will bulge and show through the lace. I will try to pick up the snap this weekend (we have a Brownie's Field Trip tomorrow and who knows about Sunday here), but I am working partial day on Monday, so I can try to run over to JA if I leave work early enough on Monday.

I used Aunt Lydia's Denim Quick in Rose (Elena chose the yarn from my stash)
Pattern is here.

I love it!! I think I may make my second one using the same yarn. Even though my gauge is correct with the Cotton Ease, I'm not loving it.

That's going to look adorable on your daughter! Have fun with the Brownies!!

Thanks for the compliments! Megan, your second one! Ugh, I am not making another one. The Quick Denim was okay, I didn't try it on her, but the gauge worked out fine. The problem with Aunt Lydia's is that once you cut the yarn and weave it in, it's splitty. It is lighter then the CE (in my opinion) even though it's 75% cotton/25% acrylic.

That's adorable Deneen. Job well done!

Elena is going to look so cute in it... it resembles a kimono top... Come on Deneen you should do another one for her.

Mimi said...

Pretty! I'd love to see it on Elena ;)

It is adorable! I like the color and the pattern too. I might try it...
anyway, love yours.

BTW welcome to the varifocal club! I got mine two years ago, and although I don't often wear them in the house unless I'm watching TV, I love them. It is great to go to the grocery store, be able to see at a distance, but then not have to take my glasses off to read the print on the tin cans, you know?

Cute, Cute Cute!!! And oh, the thought of doing it in cotton ease.

Hint, when weaving in a splitty yare, try the Russian was, thread it on a needle and weave it in and out of a strand. Ease it in and if it looks like it will still fray a little, put a dab of fray check(the June Taylor kind is the softer).
