Bolero - a simple harmony of knitting and crochet

This bolero happened because of my stash. I had several skeins of Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed in colors Jewel and Beach, and I absolutely needed to use them: they were in stash far too long...
The pattern was simple enough, needles used # 8, and crochet hook size I (5.5 mm).
This is the result: a simple harmony of knitting and crochet, the way it meant to be.

Top "Summer Flowers"

This top was inspired by a dress pattern from one of the French magazines. I used "Petra" DMC cotton and a hook # 1.75 The project was fun, but connecting all the flowers took a while, and was not too exciting...
However, it is done, and summer is almost over...

Spanish vest

It was named it this way because I started working on it while on vacations in Spain. Finally it is done! I used Habu textiles cotton: a very fine yarn, and crocheting hook # 1.5
The darker yarn is DMC cotton from my stash.
