sky blue jacket

Last night we had some rain at last, after weeks of dry and warm weather! You could hear a sigh of relief from our garden - at last some decent rain water! Many of the plants seemed to have been adjusting to the dry, hardening soil. Just as well, because that was that, no more rain in sight..... 
Still no sewing here; too warm in my sewing room, and I don't seem to be able to get motivated to do any hand sewing at the moment.
But I have been enjoying my crochet project, the cotton yarn is easy to handle.
It is the first time I am using any of the Drops yarns.
This pattern is using Drops Muskat cotton and I must say that I really like working with it.

And here it is, all done!
I am finding hard to get the right shade of blue on the screen, but the picture below is probably the nearest to sky blue of the yarn.

And considering that I have never crochet anything to wear before, it fits very well.
I am very pleased with it.
It has just one button at the top, but I have also found a nice pin in my stash to use over the button, just for change.
I plant to wear it over my summer dress (which has various shades of blue and green) and
over plain white or cream summer vest tops.

Enjoy your weekend!
