WIP Wednesday

Ah, it's Wednesday yet again and it's not a WIP, but a FO for ya:

The Floral Cami


Gauge smauge-no clue with the Horizontal net stitch how to figure this one out, but there is so much ease in this stitch, I made the size small and it fits fine. I promise a pic later wearing it with a cami underneath-it may even be a bit big.

Hook: H 5 mm
Yarn: LB Cotton Ease in Popsical Blue- 1 3/4 skeins
Modifications: Pattern was error free, however I did not do the ribbon down the sides but whip stitched up the sides and left the bottom shells open (like in the pic on the pattern page). Still undecided whether I will stitch up by the side of the shells, I have to see how it fits me first.

Will I wear it? I don't know (and yes, I know how many of us have made items never to wear them).

I hope to work on the Abydos vest next and want to thank Karen for her specs she just posted. Love the vest too!

I owe emails to about a gazillion people (Tina, I know and I am sorry and promise to get back to you some time today). We had a hectic weekend and beginning of the week and I will play catch up, or try to, the next few days.

That's really nice! Good job!

I may have to try that myself. :)

Mimi said...

Pretty! I think if I made one, I'll wear it. It will look great with a fitted tank and jeans.
...I have several crocheted garments that I do not wear, but I still love having them ;)

Karen said...

Nice top Deneen! I've been wondering what yarn to substitute for the simply soft and the cotton ease is a good choice.

Sheila said...

Totally stunning and great color - I like the detail stitching at the bottom.

April said...

Look at that! It's pretty cute. Throw a spaghetti strap tank or cami beneath it and I bet it would look super cute with jeans. I like it much better without the ribbon.

I like the Abydos vest too and I ordered the book finally so I'll have access to the pattern soon enough. I think I'd like to see it a few inches longer though.

Cute FO!

That's gorgeous, D.! I like the color too. :)

Looks good, I really like the color.
My hubby just asked me over the weekend why I make stuff if I'm never going to wear it, I'll have to show him this post :)

Linda said...

Great job! I love the shell edging. I think it will look good on you.

Jewels said...

Oh I totally love it - especially in the color you chose. Wow, less than two skeins used too?

NIcely done Deneen, I like it a lot.

Crochet Goddess said...

Wow very pretty. Great color.

Kelly The Crafty Cat said...

Really pretty Deneen. It could look sexy for play time as well... lol

Love the hair cut!

Tracie said...

That's beautiful. I may definitely have to give this one a try, right along with the tunic I haven't started You do great work. And you seem to get so much more done than I do. Wish you lived closer--I'd absorb some of that inspiration!
