Hi!  I recently made a tank top out of granny squares (no pattern was used):


It looks kind of boxy when laid out flat, but actually fits nicely:


Close-up (ignore the color change- it's just different lighting.):


Annnd then earlier today I was doing some organizing in my bedroom and felt that I needed a better way to store some of my favorite necklaces and pins... so I quickly made this up:




I like it!  Thank you for looking. Smiley

You can't be that old.  I will 43 in June and I remember those.  Love the tank and the necklace holder.  Hmmm I could one of those to hold my necklaces as I don't wear alot of jewelry so I have very few pieces.

haha!  this is a pretty 70s-inspired design.  i sometimes wear shirts and dresses that my grandmother crocheted for my mom back in the 70s... now i'm crocheting my own clothes.  it's genetic, i guess!
