The Crochet Mojo is Back!

Whew! The Sambuca Jacket is done, except for weaving the ends in and sewing on a button. Today isn't that hot, probably only in the 80's, and I got my crochet mojo back. The sweater is in the wash now, soaking and then to be blocked and left to dry. Too hot to wear these days, but in a couple of months, it'll be perfect with my purple skirt and a light blouse.

I love this pattern. I think I need to spin enough yarn to make it in "Bundaflicka Tweed. The blue would be great! It's quick knit, but spinning enough yarn for it will take me a couple of months, I think. So, right after the teal laceweight if finished, I'll get started on the blue. I only have 4 more batts of the teal to go...laceweight is a killer to spin for me. I just don't have enough time in the day to get it all done at once. I love doing it, though!

That is a lot of work, I would not have the patience for it. Thank you for coming by.

Be sure to post a photo when you get it totally done - I'd love to see it.
I'm glad to hear that you've had some relief from the heat.

I can't wait to see it. I'm attending a crocheting workshop next weekend in Ireland to learn how to follow a pattern. :)
