As much as I love the cheery bursts of colors, I wanted a wearable garment. I am a Plain Jane where clothes are concerned -- plain colors for me please!
So I chose a pineapple motif (as this is commonly referred to) and got working on it. I started at 1am in the wee hours of the morning. Yes, I figured I was a little insomniac and figured that a little crochet work will get me tired enough to crawl back to bed.
Honestly, it was a wrong move.
Instead of feeling tired, crocheting got me so energized that I stayed up all the way until 5am. Then I woke up around noon time and kept going. That's a serious crochet addiction, I tell you.
Then by 10pm at night, I am all done. All in less than 24 hours!
This pattern is originally a fully crocheted skirt.
I am now contemplating that instead of 100% crochet skirt, I might want:
- To pick up the stitches and knit upwards to the waist?
- Or maybe a toga top with this being the accent piece at the neckline?
- Or leave it as is and use it as a shawlette?
- Or do as what the gals are suggesting: turn it into a dress!
But seriously, I am tempted with the dress idea...
