Crochet & Fashion

I love when my daughter sports my crochet garments... Its makes for a proud mama wouldn't you say, also she is my walking advertisement...hehe. The weather was just ripe this week for it and thought I'd share a pic of her. Now this garment is a Flash Back. I purchased a bag of Bernat Yarn about a year ago on sale and wasn't sure what to do with it... In October 2006 I started fiddling around with it, initially thinking I would do a shrug... then decided a cardigan would do and as you can see it became a vest. Finally got a pic of her wearing it. She likes to call it the BeBop Girl Vest... I call it the Cool Water Vest... go figure.
In other News, my daughter will be participating in Lehman College's IDSA Fashion Show on April 30th. I can't wait to see her strut her stuff, along with the other young ladies... here is a snippet of the crew. All of the young ladies pictured are college students... putting their best foot forward. You Go Girls!!!! Also, one fourth of the profits will be donated to charity to help in the research of cancer. I'm so proud of my daughter in that she has had to travel nearly 2 hrs each way for 4 days a week to make rehearsals, on top of attending classes.... whew!

The vest looks great on her. I know she feels so lucky to be able to have beautiful crochet clothes to wear, made especially for her, by her loving mom.
