My Creative Space

I could hardly wait to finish crocheting Maya’s new little top I started last week.
I could hardly wait to get it on her.
Actually I didn’t wait. It’s nearly done. I still need to finish weaving in the ends. I tried it on her anyway. She ended up wearing it the whole day and I kept poking unfinished ends back inside.I’m really happy with the way it turned out, even though it is a bit tighter around her body than I had hoped for.
I also had to modify the pattern and add some more rows across the shoulders so her arms could fit through. Tension swatches are so borrring!
Now it’s dirty after a hard day of commando crawling and now I miss it. The crocheting that is. I wish I hadn’t finished it so quickly. Sure I have other crochet projects but I really enjoyed doing this one.

PS. Do you know how hard it is to make a very active 10 month old sit and pose for a photo?
