I cannot believe summer is winding down for so many of us. It was one strange summer that flew by, but at times went slow. Before this season is over, I want to get a lot of use out of my newest wardrobe piece, the Sagebrush Lindy Chain Sweater.
Wearing this pullover sweater has been so much fun because it's very diverse. It can be worn over a tank but also roomy enough to dress it up with a collared shirt.
My baby sister is generous in always saying yes to modeling my designs. But what makes me excited is when she loves the piece and says things like, "I would wear this to work."
I'm still trying to win her over to the crochet world, but she would prefer to wear what I make. Trust me; I'm going to keep trying to get her to pick up a hook. However, for now, I'm thrilled when she wants to borrow new crochet or knit garments.
