Summer Crochet, Part 3

I finished it! 

It wasn't a difficult project. I should have finished it two weeks ago. But school started, and I got slammed with lesson planning and teaching and such. By the time evening rolled around, I didn't have the mental capacity to do all that much, and the top fell by the wayside. 

Because, seriously, those straps should have taken maybe two nights. And that's including after showing them to the niece and having to redo them because they were too wide for her. 

Something that I've hidden in previous posts and pictures is that there is a seam at the back of this thing. . . 

It took me by surprise when I started the pattern as the designer had hidden it. It was worked in the round, but it was also worked back and forth. It was an interesting design choice, but I see why the designer did it that way. (I only mention it so it doesn't take anyone else by surprise.) 

So, now it's done. Finally. (As is my gig at the alternative education center, but more on that on Wednesday.) 

My next planned project needs to not be mentioned on the blog for a couple of reasons, so I have no idea what I'll show off next week. (I'll tell you all about it once it's finished or abandoned. Either outcome is possible.)

  1. It's beautiful! And the seam wouldn't bother me a bit. Take care, my dear.

    1. I probably would have designed it differently, but I didn't design it, so. . .

  3. It came out great! And I don't think I would have noticed the seam. Now I am intrigued with your next project!

  5. Nice! It came out really cute. But now I'm all curious about this mystery project. Why do you have to tantalize? :D

  6. It looks lovely and I bet it will get a lot of wear (although not as much this year as your summer days are dwindling). Look forward to hearing about your mystery project... (I have great faith it will be fine).

    1. Yeah, I'd never wear something like that. Easy enough to make, but I couldn't get away with it.

  8. I love the colour, of course. I bet she will love it and I hope she sends you a picture and will allow you to post it here. I hope she will model it. Ahhh, to be thin like that again. :)

    1. We'll see if she's willing to go public. That will be up to her.
