It seems that all I do lately...is try to get caught up. I have put my Etsy shop on vacation for a little while. Currently, I am crocheting a little at night and on the weekends. I'm trying to work out a schedule since I started my new job. Crocheting has been a lesser priority. My WIP is a bikini top. I get lots of orders for these in the spring and summer.
Sorry about the photos...black is not the best to photograph.
This is an order I have been struggling to finish. Hopefully, it will be finished tomorrow. I have 3 more orders to finish after this one. In the recent past, before starting my new job, I could whip out an order in a couple of days. But not now. I get frustrated with myself, because I feel like my customers are waiting, waiting, and waiting. I hope they understand. When I finish this top it should look like this...
I wish I could share some new projects, but maybe in a couple of weeks I'll be able to. Since my shop is closed for a couple of weeks, you can find this pattern here on Ravelry.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
Such pretty bikini tops. Give me a year to 18 months and I might be able to fit back into one! Pregnancy and breastfeeding are death to the bustline!ReplyDelete
Yep, my problem is trying to get rid of my midsection:DDelete
I looooove these. I made myself a few back in the day, when I still wore bikinis! What fiber do you use?ReplyDelete
Sorry so long for the response. I usually use Tahki Cotton Classic. It's the best for bikinis
