I want to give a very BIG, heartfelt thanks to everyone who posted on Facebook, emailed me, or blog commented with suggestions for my next project! It really was the spark I needed. Please feel free to send along any ideas you ever have.
But for now... the winner is... MY MOM!
My mom emailed me a pic of a hand-crocheted sweater in Sundance catalog. I never really perfected the sweater dresses I crocheted before, and I have been meaning to try again. Can you believe I made those over 2 years ago?! Since my mom's suggestion, I actually have half a dress from I have a pattern that I really love, but there are a few issues:
First, the pattern is in Scandinavian crochet terms, but translated to British English crochet terms. Also, the diagram is in Scandinavian terms. FYI: I read American English crochet terms, whiiiich are named the same but have very different meanings as British English terms. I mean??! Guh.. let's just say I like a challenge.
Anywhoooo, here is a taste of my inspiration:
