At that time I was still inexperienced when it came to crocheting big things, especially things more complicated than a flat blanket. Halfway through making the sweater, I was sick of the colors. By the time I finished all pieces, I didn't even want to wear it anymore. And it also turned out smaller than I planned. Needless to say, that sweater, or the parts of that sweater, are still sitting in the bottom of my craft bin.
Earlier this summer I decided to take another stab at crocheting clothing. This time I chose a tank top. That had to be easier than a sweater, right? And it was. I stitched up the front, and then the back which was identical. All that was left was sewing those two pieces together and adding simple straps. I will say I had to redo the straps because they weren't long enough the first time around, but after my second attempt, I was so proud of my work.
What makes me even prouder of my work is that my tank held up and passed the ultimate test - the washing machine. It actually fits better after I washed it than before.
I have decided that if it doesn't have sleeves, I can make it. That is why I'm hoping my latest project turns out just as well as the tank. I just hope my fingers don't fall off before I'm done!
Until next time...
