A bit of color Sneak Preview

Originally uploaded by rchach

Here's a new sneak preview for you guys. It's a garment that will be published sometime this fall in a magazine.

I think its adorable on Susie Q. Even M, approves.

The yarn is Mission Falls 136 Superwash, which is a delight to crochet with. Big surprise, right? It's a DK merino wool- my favorite blend!

Megan gave me a big hand by crocheting the body for me. Which really helped, since I ripped out the edging a bunch to get it just so. So many times, that while I was home sick on Monday; I was re-crocheting it again in bed with me. Got to be the perfectionist!

The big push of designing and crocheting is finally over with this (and the next one I will show you) out the door. I'm really happy that I got them all out. It was a push for sure! The next few projects on my desk have wonderful deadlines of April and May; so I'm hopeful that I'll be able to take care of the business side (yucky taxes) and still have some time to get moving on a new book proposal.

Hope all your crocheting is going well!

It turned out really nicely! I like that edging much better than the original edging.
