One of the cool things about living in Florida is that we can wear the cute Summer clothes for pretty much most of the year. In my younger and thinner days, I used to wear some of those shirts that you tie up in the back. They leave you belly and you back exposed. Well, I can't do that anymore! But I did want a shirt similar to that style, but age (and body type) appropriate. So I decided to crochet something like that for myself! I know some of you may be thinking that yarn is too thick to wear in the Summer. But it's not if you use the right kind of yarn, and make the right style of shirt!
The front. I used a tighter stitch for the top part so you can't see through the shirt. I used a looser stitch for the bottom part.
The back. I still get to tie it up, but it covers up the stuff I don't want seen!
The shirt may not be something you would find on the runway, but I like it!
Another cool thing about Florida is the fresh fruit! My boyfriend has an uncle that brings us freshly picked fruit from time to time, plus we live around the corner from a produce market. So we're good on fresh fruit here! Yesterday, the uncle brought us three watermelons. Watermelons seem like the ultimate Summer fruit! But I wanted to see if we could do something else with them besides just eat them. So I found some stuff online. This is what I tried today:
