Crochet Cami "Sunrise"...

Well, I'm still trying to overcome this sore throat, coughing and overall sickness.  Doc started me on new meds yesterday so I'm praying this will clear this mess up and get it out of my house.

So, I've had to put aside completing "My Polar Bear" Blanket for a few days since it requires more energy and thought to finalize the pattern.  But, I've managed to work on a few smaller projects/ideas that I had jotted down.  And, here is one of them for ya -- Cami "Sunrise"

I've had this gorgeous Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn in Sunrise for probably the last year to year and half waiting for the right inspiration to use it on.

Who doesn't need an undergarment for the top that may be getting a little snug or is cut too low and too revealing?  Well, this is the perfect essential wardrobe item to have -- add a little color and a splash of crochet, especially with warmer weather on its way.

This project works up fairly quickly, doesn't require much yarn and is easy for any crocheter to complete.
