Addicted

Nothing illegal about my addiction.

I am just so captivated by the current latest crochet project that I am making more headway than I am used to. I can sit for hours to crochet this baby. In fact, it's growing big enough for me to try on.

And so trying on, it is.

I can't do this photo without my top beneath lest it gets R-rated. This is a snug fit garment by the time it's done. No one's fault. I just like my outfits to have very little ease to show my curves better since they are almost non-existent -- so small crochet hooks it is. I wonder if anyone manage to figure out which pattern I am using.

In fact by 10am this morning, I have gotten started on the next section.

If you look closely enough, you will realize that I have ripped out the yoke a little. Save for turtle or funnel necks, I don't like my collars to be way up high as I get the feeling of being chokey all the time.

I haven't forgotten about hubby's vest though. It's already at the armhole divide.

It's getting too heavy to really tote around -- I used to carry this project in a big Harrods bag so it may languish as a stay-at-home knitting project now. Hubby also needs to decide if it's a round or v-neck collar he wants.

However, here's a lovely completed vest by Leena -- her very first knitting project!

There's a sweet story behind this one. If you want to read about it and see how this vest looks modelled, click here.

Looking great! Is that really the crochet dress from Interweave? I liked that a lot but, of course, can't crochet worth a darn.
