Mr T wondering what I am doing...
me wondering what I was doing...
best I can do I am afraid...Phil was asleep and I couldn't wait for him to get up and take them lol
but at least you can see what it looks like as a cropped top...but do I leave it as it is or lengthen it???
Made several items to wear using this motif from collars to tops to shawls.
Happy Hooking

  1. Hi Sue, your flowery top looks fabulous and great on black. I love the way your necklace and glasses are colour coordinated too!
    It looks good in the cropped length, though I go for longer lengths on tops for me because of hips! But how you feel about the length on you is the main thing!

  8. I love it the length it is, the colours are just wonderful, I have been looking at the same yarn and am very tempted, sorry if you have already said but did you use just one variant the the passion or different ones and did you use a pattern for the top or is it something you made up yourself? Thanks in advance x
