short n sweet and thrifty knitter tank

Sorry for the excessive pics. I'm excited. I really like these two. Made in brown sheep's cotton fleece, color plum patina, and a little bit of putty. This is the first time I've used cotton fleece and I love it. It's a great yarn.

The tank is a bit see through. I'm trying to figure out a way to sew in a lining or something. We'll see. I might crochet along the sides of the straps too, to make them wider so bra strap hiding is easier.

I am brand new to crochet so the bolero was quite a challenge and I am ridiculously proud of how it turned out.

Oh yeah the tank pattern is free and can be found here.

I love te tank and the little cover up. Most of I love the hair though. Looks great.

That set is so cute! I have the Happy Hooker book but haven't tried anything from it yet. You've inspired me to get to crocheting.

p.s. Thanks for visiting my blog!

I'm so jealous! It is beautiful! I have been trying to make that same shrug, but it's too tight. I think I must be using the wrong yarn.
