Look at what I wish I had time to make:
This Bracelet Length Cardi from Lisa Gentry’s Unforgettable Crochet would be a wonderfully practical piece to add to my closet. I love the sleeve length, solid color, and simple pattern design.
Looped Loops from CrochetWear by Ann Regis—I like the great, boxy shape of it.
For a dressy/really girly addition, Lisa Gentry’s Wrap Sweater from Teach Yourself Crochet Ribbon Accents might fit the bill.
Of course, I hit the jackpot of fashion with Lisa Gentry’s The Crochet Closet which features 15 designs to enhance your wardrobe. Check out the ones I’m coveting:
Buttons & Shells Jacket (Love the huge buttons!)
Best Boucle Cardigan
Belted Pant Coat
Weekend Warmer Sweater
Sweater with Flair
Elegant Swing Coat (For the date nights I imagine in my wildest dreams that the Love-Of-My-Life will take me out on…right after the auction.)
The cardigan that I absolutely must have to keep me warm (the one I might actually manage to make for myself because I like it so much) is from The Crochet Dude Drew Emborsky’s Crochet It. Love It. Wear It:
Debra (featuring all-over cables in a solid color)
And I just had to show you, also from Drew’s book, the design I just wish I had the fashion presence to actually wear—Budapest Nights. Inspired by romantic Budapest, this full-length asymmetrical coat is a combination of traditional and modern with luxurious faux fur trim. Gorgeous!!!
