Crochet, Crochet and more Crochet

My hands have been extremely busy with crochet.  I am very amazed at how much I have completed lately.  I have managed to finish a vest, tank and "hair tube", as well as work on the flower blanket.

(Will post pictures of me wearing the items soon, so you get a better idea of how they look.)

The vest pattern is from Crochet Today, called the Stripped Shrug.  I thought it would look pretty as one color (plus I didn't want to have to carry the double yarn throughout).  I choose the cream and I added the fun fur in hopes to make it look a classy, yet fun.

The tank....hmmm, not sure if I like how this turned out.  Found here, called the Happy Days Halter.  I am not very happy with how it lays on my tummy.  I do not have a flat, ripped out abs, and this halter/tank hugs that area...maybe if I block the halter, it will look better. (or do more sit-ups) 

The Hair Tube.  Love it!!!  Using a larger hook, and crochet yarn, it is very flexible.  I don't have dreads, but do have lots of curly hair to tame.  This thing looks great, is comfortable and was easy to make.

The blanket, not finished, but at least still getting worked on.  Maybe not as fast as I would like, but at least I am picking it up every couple days and making progress.  I have even figured out the layout of all the flowers.
