Top of the pops

Foto-1185So  i finally got my act together and sew the parts of my crochet top together. i had put it off because I didn’t think I was going to like it. But I did!

I’ve never followed a crochet pattern before, and although it may not be exactly as in the picture,  well, I’m happyFoto-1111

Using the fine wool I found at Salvation Army I’m making a waistcoat for my son’s birthday.The fabric is a dark grey with light blue stripes, so I decided to use a lining in that same blue (colors show better in the picture below).

I’m using Simplicity 4762 which I bought as a download pattern a while ago, and I can’t recommend that!  You’d think it would be easy to just match the pieces together with the little markings on each sheet of paper- well it wasn’t. No matter how careful I was, some pieces just wouldn’t fit, and the finished pattern is really difficult to handle with all the taped printer papers.

And this was a fairly small item. No more downloads for me, that’s for sure!
