Hello sun beams! 🙂
My visiting friend just barely left for home and already I was itching to share with you my latest accomplishment in the crochet department: a lace granny square pullover 😎 Ta-daaaah!
How amazing is it that from a group of squares simply sewn together something pretty and practical can be made? ❤ I’m quite pleased with how this number turned out – I even bought that lovely batik wrap-around skirt to pair it with for this photo shoot XD XD
Not that it needs something special to work with, I think it’s pretty versatile. See here with my everyday “SAHM uniform” tanktop & shorts :
The yarn is the very same cotton I unraveled from this shrug I crocheted some time ago. Something was not quite right about its original design so I decided to create something new with it. The good thing about working with quality cotton is that it’s very resilient and, despite being ‘second-hand’ at this point, still holds its shape quite well.
I’m happy with my choice of motif as well ❤ It just looks right to me. Here’s a close-up:
I really love the idea of layering pieces and lace crochet does lend itself very well to that.
Okay so I’m now off to my next project 😀
And oopsies! There’s a stray tail that I missed in one of these pictures XD Can you find it? 😀 Let me know!
