My latest work in progress... I'm making a top for my friend out of South West Trading Company's Bamboo in the color called Sahara.
I have to tell you that I just love the drape that I got for this top! This project is being crocheted instead of knitted and it still feels so good... and best of all sexy! :-) I'd love to personally feel this fabric against my skin - it's soft with a cool touch to it and just feels so good. You understand if you've ever worked with SWTC's Bamboo before. :-)
Pictured is the back of the top with the front kind of scrumpled up at the left below the skein. I can't wait to finish this and hear how well my friend likes it. The color is awesome, but just not a "Pinka" favorite. I love bright colors and never seem to get bored... but for some reason I'm having a little trouble picking this up to finish it - as much as I want to get it completed. The colors are just not exciting for me so I find myself getting a little bored at times. So, in the mean time, I'm playing with other yarns and swatching for my next design and project. :-)
So, the big question is... will I be able to get this completed for next week? I sure hope so!!!! :-) Don't have too much more to go and the back always seems to be the largest piece so the rest should go pretty quickly. :-)

Take care,
