New Short-sleeved sweater

okay... so i have that new blue yarn. ^_^

I started 5-6 rows tonight because i was excited about making another shirt... I think i'm going to make a tank again, then finish it off with some short sleeves. We'll see if the yarn holds out.

So far i'm working on the front, and i have 3/4th of the tank strap done. I'm working it the same way i did with the other tank. Vertical SC all the way through so i can add length when it comes to the tank straps. It looks kind of like this

so all the rows are easy to do. I'll make one for the front and for the back, then join them together and make the sleves....... it will be interesting. Pictures to come tomorrow!

I was just so excited to start crocheting again i had to share it with everyone ^_^

Tank top Tank

okay... okay.. Rebecca.. thank you for reminding me of the tank top...

the yarn is beautiful and it washes soooooo softly!

here are pictures, but i'm afraid i'll have to do some of it over.....
Back:


And Front:


I didn't expect the yarn to get softer and much more flexible.

It was Reynold's Utopia.. some cream color! Forgive me, they only mark it with a number. but it's 100% Courtelle Acrylic.. SO SOFT!!!

The problem is that it's way too big. I can fit it around my hips because it stretched. So, i think i'll buy some more and make it into a sweater ^_^.

finally here

YAY! hee hee. Okay... I have some photos for you.

Here is the new yarn i purchased:
Pretty blue!


Close up:


of course, the flash totally takes out the real color of the yarn. Ah well.

So here is my dilema. I don't know what to make out of it. It was pretty expensive ($9 for both of them!) so i don't know if i should make a scarf, or start on a poncho.

My previous plan was to make a blanket (it's already getting cold here in NY) but i don't know. This is nice for a border color, but my other colors are varied! Talk about putting boucle with other cotton/acrylic blends... hee hee take a look:


any help would be great. otherwise, i'm going to make up some squares, put them all together (maybe like a mile-a-minute afghan) or just something totally made up.. hee hee

Posting and Pictures, i Promise!

Thank you to those that visit and offer warm support!
<3<3 It's much appreciated. <3<3


I've added some buttons on the side - A link to my regular blog, TR's crafts and hook me up (thanks emily!).

Homework is always looming in the background so when i'm done with my paper (and spending some time with my DH), I'll post photos of the yarn and maybe a drawring of the blanket i plan to make.

It was really funny... I looked at all the bags i had full of yarn and there are SO MANY skeins that were unused, or are left over and not enough to do anything with. If this project goes well, i'll post it on the Crochetville project pages to see if anyone else would like to try.

Gotta go now, will write soon with photos!

More yarn

okay... so the other project turned into a HUGE tank top that was very soft ^.^ lufly!

i'm sick so i'll either be sleeping or crocheting. Who needs to do homework.... <_<

I just bought 2 more skeins of yarn. I'll post the color, photos and brand when i go home. i don't know what to do with it, though. As i told Dani (she commented on my last post - YAY!), I may make socks, or start blocks for my afghan. i have lots of extra yarn that i can't do anything with... maybe i'll just make a patch work afghan! YEAH! Okay!

Now... i just need to get started. time to get back to work ^_^.

hee hee
