It has been quite a while I know! I have been working hard, there is always something new to learn, I am getting old from learning, but still crafty!
Between the coloring, crochet family and work my life is been very interesting I should say. Anyway on another time I show you some of the coloring, but now I feel more like showing the crochet top I am working on.It is black as I have to wear black to work, the original is in lavender which I love though black is nice too,

So let me get going I’ll change the sleeves too ’cause i need my coverage against the AC. Hope you like it, I do!
I love Bernat Yarn, I just do. This yarn is so soft and never let me down in any of my projects so far, not that I ‘m crocheting that much but you know what I mean. It took me a while to get used t Canadian yarns or should I say Canadian/American yarn, though after a few tryouts I became such a fan of some a them, to the point that well let’s just say a big fan of them.
So my lovely neighbour came home early 2015 to say they were pregnant with twins, I guess we were, one of, the first to know because just were coming back from the doctor.
All the year went by and whenever I thought of a gift I knew I had to make a crochet jacket for them, I don´t know it is j the way it is supposed to be, after all we were one of the firs to know.
So of course her water broke before expected, and once again of course I hadn’ t made anything yet: too much work a promotion at work, learning a new position all that got in the away. Then we went back home in the summer I could go on and on and on. I had to do it for Christmas when they would be 3 months being premature. I don’t know about you but to me half of the fun is choosing the pattern, and f course not following it and finding out ways to finish off. With all that being taken care of I made them these cute little things.

Their Mom almost passed out, and I was so glad she understood that handmade gifts have love in every piece of their way, love in every stitch.
I showed my daughter, because now she is 8 and of course needs a larger purse whenever she is on a spree with her daddy.
I absolutely loved this one though she asked me to make some changes, she is right not only because she is not a grown up but most importantly I like to give things my personal touch. So I followed the multi color idea, the ‘patchwork’ kind of style, I adored the colours she initially used so I stuck to them and changed some little thing here and there, it is almost coming to an end, so take a peak before I go ahead and do the lining.

I know it has been a long time but my hands are still busy! Hope you are doing fine! Just because everyone and I mean everyone seems to have at least one item with some animal print, I decided to … Continue reading →
I hope you are all doing well, I have to wer black to winork, and plus I’ve always wanted to try this pineapple top I saw the pattern a looooong time ago so I believe 3 to 4 years, I bought a magazine with one variation of the pattern and left is aside. Now I made up my mind but did not want to follow one pattern only, so I kind of made the top with larger pineapple motif and because I thought it might become a little too loose make only chains alond the body I did some variation of stitches, therefore I did not get bored and it did make my “belly” feel more let’s just say protected. At the bottom I did smaller sizd pineapples and because I did not count the stitches as I went along I had to make them work in order to have even motif numbers.
Of course I used did 5 chains and 1 sc to finish off at the last row just because it seemed right.
I already had some compliments, but what it best, I loved the final result.

As I move on my new job, it seems to me I have little time to dedicate to my crochet blogs, though I still save some for my crochet adventures, which include a pineapple top -for myself to wear at work, and the completion of my daughter’s pineapple crochet tee.
I am triyng to figure out a way to take a picture of my top it is nice lacy and black, since I left my mannequim back home in Brazil, I have to find out how to give you an idea of how it looks, meanwhile take a look at the last and final version of the tee.

I Liked this edging for its A line kind of shaping, that I secured would be formed by adding a few more chain stitches and a sort of a V in the row prior to the last one.
I made a flower to go with it and it was a wonderful opportunity for me to make some use of this cute buttom I purchased a long time long ago.
