New Top


Hello Everyone!
Here's a tank top I finished. This pattern is Elegant Shell from Lyon Brand. I used Sonata yarn from Elann. I changed the neckline a little and I'm happy with how it turned out. The pattern was easy to follow, so if you want to crochet a top that goes pretty quickly, this is a good one to try. Ok, maybe quick for others, but not me.

I don't seem to get through any project quickly because I don't usually work on one thing at a time. I work on several projects and usually start something else along the way. I eventually finish my projects, just not in the order I start them. Hhmmmm ..... maybe I do this because I have schedules to keep up with and have so many deadlines at work .... daily, weekly, biweekly, monthly,... you get the idea. This is my way of dealing with what I have to do. I can finish a craft project whenever I want, right? Right! Wow! I never thought of this before. I may have just come up with some new stress/personality theory! Naahhhhh, I just like to play when I can.

So who else does this? Do you start and finish a project before starting another or do you work on several at a time?

Nice top. And I like to work on more than one thing at a time, it keeps me interested and I don't get too bored with certain projects.

Ohhh.. I like it, will you wear a body shaper under it...? I going over to Lion Brand to get the pattern... Thanks. As for me I try to force myself to focus on one project at a time, which allows me to finish it quickly. Or I will start a second project if I'm waiting to get yarn to finish the first project. It would be so easy for me to forget projects, if I have too many laying around.

I'm a multi-project person. When I get tired of working on something, I will just not knit or crochet unless I have something else to work on.

I like the top. Great color choice. I try to work on one crochet and one knitting project at a time. That way I don't have too much going on.
