FO - Prepster!



And finally, the Prepster jacket from the Happy Hooker book. My first crocheted garment. I made it from Wellington Fibre's hand-dyed yarn. It's a little itchy (I was enamoured by the colour and the fact that it was the perfect weight). It's very warm, so should come in handy this fall and winter.

Hey, I really like your last few FOs, especially the sweater with the wings. (I know I'm a bit late, but I just found your blog. I'm from the Ottawa SnB.)

Thanks Tara! I've just checked out your blog - it's really good :) Another one to add to my blog reading list.

Thanks salamander! Crochet scared me for a long time. I avoided all patterns that included it (to my own detriment and sadness) :( Then I tried it - not difficult at all! If you can knit, you can crochet :)

That is just way too cute. Wonderful job. It drew my attention in the book too, but I wasn't too sure about it. I think it is a risk to crochet and you made a fabulous garment! Inspiration.
