After making child's tops for my daughters, I have just finished an adult version for myself, woohoo !! :-)

I'm really so happy of how it turned out, after, let me see... ripping it 3 or 4 times !!  ;-P
Here's the final result:



And here are the in-progress pics, in between each ripping and restarting..  :-P

(it closes in the back with 2 oversized buttons, as seen in last pic)

I'm also really surprised that I only used 3 hanks of Malabrigo merino worsted for it !!  :-D

And next, here's a little beret I finished yesterday, claimed by my little girl. She just looked too cute in it, plus she really needed a new hat ! (It's a little loose so it'll fit her great next winter)


Hope you like them !

THanks.. i've actually just finished a second one, with kureyon I got real cheap on Ravelry..  :-)
 
I made a small this time, but it may be a bit too fitted this time...

I love it already anyway, I'm sure I'll wear it a lot ! :-)

Thanks so much.. I actually wear the kureyon one quite often, and love it !! I believe it's one of the things I made myself that I wear the most, and by far !!!

I also totally LOVE kureyon antarcticraft, it's just such a fantastic yarn. Love both the texture and those amazing color changes. I love crocheting it too !!

The pink Merino one is actually a bit too large for me so I never wore it (still looking for a good home.. :-)
