I started the Sambuca jacket about 2 weeks ago and its finally finished. It was actually finished last week except for the buttons. This jacket is by Doris Chan and is in the book Amazing Crochet Lace. Great pattern!
Please excuse the lack of makeup and 10 *cough20cough* pounds that have attached themselves to my body.
I decided to make buttonholes and add buttons instead of just using a sweater clasp. You can see that I didn't place them evenly. Oops! Ask me if I care.
Christina, do you care?
Why no, no I don't! I'm leaving it the way it is.
I used 10 balls of Jaeger Roma in the color Cloud. I added more repeats to the pattern to make the bottom and sleeves longer.
So, my one year bloggiversary is coming up in September. I want to have a give away but am stumped as to what to have for a prize? A purse? Ami? Yarn? Weigh in peeps and let me know what you'd like to see as a prize.
P.S. - I booked a mini vacation today! My family is going to go to the Jersey shore later this month for 3 days. Its the first time in years that I'll have gone away. Wooooo! Excited!
