First off, I'm much more comfortable with knitting, however there are just more options in terms of design when items are crocheted. Case in point... the string bikini. I have attempted several times to knit one, with very little luck. Since I've been familiarizing myself more and more on how to crochet, I attempted to try once again, and here is what I came up with.
please keep in mind that this is my very first attempt at crocheting a bikini. While overall, I am very happy with the general design, There is still much to be improved upon... stay tuned for more bikinis!
For those of you not aware, Texans DO NOT know how to handle themselves in the snow. Last night we got about 1/2 inch of snow come down. Before that however, there was some sleet and freezing drizzle which meant that there was a thin layer of ice between the snow and ground. Luckily I was at home the entire evening and didn't have to be a part of the icy madness that was on the roads last night.
Since it was cold, I decided to be productive and keep it relevant to the conditions around me. Here is what I came up with. Two new pairs of mittens!
