i would be remiss if i didn't update you all on my finished cotton crochet crop top. i haven't yet named it, but i am quite proud of it and the fact that it goes with something considering i made it out of discontinued yarn and scraps! .

working on a pattern i haven't knit in years - miette by andi satterlund. lace is a weak spot for me, but i love the construction of this cardigan. yarn is universal yarn deluxe worsted superwash in 706 marigold.

proudly improvised the shaping to exactly what i wanted using a mix of discontinued scraps and stash yarn - one a cotton/silk blend, the other a pima cotton/bamboo blend .

working on some simple pieces with... you guessed it... odd skeins of stash yarn! this top down raglan cardigan may or may not be inspired by luna lovegood's crochet cardigan. due to the random yarn i have on hand, it's going to take a more eccentric turn once i join the sleeves to the body

she's finished: i ended up doing a ruffle trim with leftover spackle handdyed sock yarn. i actually ran out of yarn twice for this two-row ruffle. after scavenging for scraps, i ended up having to do the last 6 DCs in a blue 2-ply. i can see this with a chambray dress? something minimal? in any case, it was a great chance to come up with a new construction method!
