Current Project: Crocheted Bikini Top

^ (c) MannieMandible ^

I just started a new project!! I haven't crocheted in a while and since March is National Crochet Month, I figured I need to make some time for it (:

Above is a picture of my current project, a crochet bikini top! I'm quite excited to start this project, especially since the weather is improving and summer is approaching. I live on the west coast of Florida, so our winter is fairly mild and probably by the end of this month I'll be able to sunbathe every day (:

The pattern I am using is out of my "Crochet On The Go" deck/box & is pretty simple. It uses granny squares for the "triangle" pieces.. nifty idea, huh? I do not have any lace weight yarn, so I imagine I'll have to adjust the pattern a little, oh well! The yarn I am using (pictured above) is pink & white and is 100% cotton (:

I'm also thinking about making up some crocheted jewelry items, so keep your eyes peeled for new listings in my shop!

What are you doing to celebrate National Crochet Month?
What is(are) your current project(s)?
