TAKE A  LOOK AT MY BRAND NEW
"CROCHET  JACKET''
and my 'oil paintings below'....
I created this 'Jacket/Coat'......... in I week !
here are some photos for you to get an Idea on how I created it.  I love it ! Hope you like it too.
here are 'some stages' of creation......Sorry, I just don't know how to 'describe' 'HOW ' yet.
If you can 'figure it out'....... try it.
IF NOT......... I WILL 'CONSIDER' CREATING ONE JUST FOR YOU ! WRITE ME.
Here is beginning view..... Whole body... is crochet in One Piece!.
below is view of Body.

Now, folded over....... and crochet 'Sleeves'.....decreasing the same as 'front' and back'...
this is just to give you an 'idea' of what work looks like before you create the Sleeves.
You have to 'measure' your own 'size'.....Either in Inches or Rows.
Here is 'view of Body and 'sleeves' sewn together....and beginning of Collar.
(color looks different because of 'lighting'........)
Now.......... having created the whole body of the jacket.........at the top, around the neck....
pick up stitches and crochet upwards......till it fits around your neck the way you want it to. Then, end it!

because............NOW YOU WILL CROCHET THE 'BORDER'.........UP ONE SIDE ...then...ALL THE WAY TO AROUND THE  NECK AND DOWN THE 'OTHER' SIDE..
Here is what you will get......... create YOUR OWN BORDER.

Now finally...............Here it is 'complete' !!

Just another view !
Me wearing it ............ color shows up a little better.
It really is.............Gray and White .  I use a 4 ply Acrylic Yarn........ Wash and Wear. Red Heart
Fiesta ........'Millenium' Yarn.
Let me know if you are going to try it..........PLEASE REMEMBER, MY DESINGS ARE
COPYRIGHTED.  DO NOT 'SELL' THIS DESIGN. but by golly you can try and create it
for YOURSELF.
Hugs, Marianne

this............. is what came out!  
"The Sad Eye of My Lord"
Ok, this one was 'on my own' LOL
This is........ "A View From Above"

" Simply Flowers"


"A Touch of Spring"

(sorry, but I did not have my digital C. when I took these)

bbbdaaaaaaa bbdddaaaaaaaa
THAT'S ALLLL FOLKS !!!!! LOL
(Needless to say....... I only 'paint' when the 'mood stikes me'....and, I've bored you enough!!)
I of course have 'oooooodles' of paintings...... try it sometime....... you have no idea just
how 'relaxing' it is! Talk about forgetting 'all' your problems etc. You do enter 'another world'.
ps. I know I'm 'not' an ARTIST....... but I love it anyway!
