I found a nice weekend project on Crochet Me Magazine, the Galaxy Top by Katy Westcott.
This is what you could be doing in a weekend with bad rainy weather, or an extremely hot summer day like it is now in Florida.
All you need is a cotton yarn and some leftover fabric or an old T Shirt to revamp.
To be honest, sugar and cream yarn is kind of a pour choice to work with for crochet, it is pretty rough on your hands. It was the perfect color choice for my fabric, so i went for it anyway.

As for the fabric, I had a little green jersey leftover form the Green T.

I crochet only the adjustable circles (after reading this tutorial on The Magical Adjustable Ring by Donna Hulka) and then zig zagged a chain stitch in between for the tops neckline.
