GREY LACY TOP

(Crochet)

A lacy top in cotton…
Una blusa calada en algodón… 









I made this lacy top using a very fine cotton.  I crocheted it using double thread (one cream and the other one light grey).  I went on a limb and improvised, mixing and matching stitch patterns.  Happily it went perfect, except for one thing: it was too close for comfort.  But it did not go to waste, for it was a perfect fit to a niece mine. I guess I will have to make another one for me…

Tejí esta blusa calada en ganchillo con algodón muy fino, usando dos hilos juntos (uno crema y otra gris claro). No usé patrón, sino que lo improvisé, mezclando diferentes puntadas.  Felizmente salió bien, excepto por un pequeño detalle: me quedó demasiado justo, y yo lo quería un poco flojo.  Pero no se desperdició, ya que le quedó perfecto a una sobrina mía.  Creo que ahora tendré que hacer otro para mí…

  24. It is at times like this that I wish I was as thin as a pin so that I could wear tops like this. I takes my breath away, so gorgeous and delicate and using the two strands gives it such a textural edge! Wow.
