All Aboard >> Colorful Details

I took a picture of the swatch for the crochet lace collar above for my sneak peak post that I posted on Sunday.  At the time, this baby was just getting started and I wasn't really sure how I would like it.  Collars in general are a bit of a tricky thing for me, but I decided to go ahead and at least give it a go.

In the end, I am still on the fence about it.  I like the quirky, retro style of it, but I think it will just be an occasional thing for me.  I did appreciate the chance to finally take a stab at some lace crochet.  Using a size three steel hook to complete this took some getting used to.  Primarily, keeping my loop tension tight and even.

I decided to try to utilize some train tracks as the backdrop for photos as the collar, pearls, and overall scheme of my outfit reminded me of all things great and old school.
