Boleros are my new addiction.

So, I've made quite a bit of progress on the Knot Ugly Shrug (which, in truth, is a bolero), and I'm in love with it so far. I'm finished with the back and back halves of both sleeves, the top and front of one sleeve, and one of the front bits. I've even started seaming it (even though, in my eyes, seaming after crocheting is like the hangover after the party).

Sorry for the crappy picture quality. Bad lighting+cell phone camera=yeck. But, hopefully I'll finish either tomorrow or Tuesday and have a good picture of it by Wednesday.

Successfully finishing my babydoll tank and almost finishing my bolero (which will be finished within the next two days, dagnabbit!) has given me the confidence to try more clothing items. Just as soon as I can get ahold of enough yarn, the Violet Beauregard skirt will be mine! (Seriously. ;) ) Just be on the lookout for more clothing pieces to be popping up around here.

Now, as we all know, I'm half-arsed trying to learn to use pointy sticks. But, if I can get my hands on more patterns like these, well... maybe I might be more inspired. (Unless someone can point me in the direction of similar crochet patterns, hint hint.) Yes, I'm an underwear addict. Can't get enough. ;)


  1. I love the color of your bolero it is going to look beautiful:) I'm not quite brave enough to try making clothing yet I want to start with something small and ease my way into making a skirt for myself. Something light and breezy fo summer evenings. The lingerie is just so sexy Lovin it If I come across any while brosing around I will let'cha know
