Solange Knowles newest album "When I get Home" is a critical darling. The album has been praised across the board, and has inspired new art in its own right.

One of Solange's fans posted a series of photos Tuesday of a crop top she crocheted, featuring Solange's face from the cover of the album.

Akua Darkwa, a 19-year-old student at the University of Illinois shared her hand crafted clothing.

The top took Darkwa 12 hours over four days to make.

In an interview with Page Six Style, Darkwa described her process,

"The process of crocheting is tedious and a bit stressful at times, but finally getting to the end is so rewarding that I don't think it's something I'm ever gonna stop doing."

She's been crocheting since she was a child, though she didn't start making clothing until high school.

And it would seem people agree that this shirt is fire!






Darkwa's passion did not go unnoticed. In addition to all the people on Twitter asking her to make them one, Solange herself retweeted the tweet.

"It feels amazing knowing Solange saw it!"

Darkwa said.

"And now there's thousands of people in the world who know and love my work. It feels great."





Solange's new album has proven to be a powerhouse. Some reviews have called it the best album of the year so far, with Metacritic's aggregate scoring it 89 out of 100.

The album has been praised for its spacey sound, with synths and electronic sounds reinforcing the cosmic ambience. Knowles has said she was very focused on what she had to "feel" for an album about going home.

It's proven very popular. Combined with Darkwa's skill and hard work at her crochet, how could you not want a Solange top?





Darkwa plans to wait to take orders. She is still in classes and wouldn't have the time to make these for everyone who wants one.

"I do have plans to start selling! I'm planning on doing orders in mid-to-late summer,"

Darkwa confirmed.



I guess the last question is, think she can do other artists?

As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

Board games are designed carefully by teams of experts. Countless brainstorm sessions are carried out, designs and prototypes are proposed and changed, and plenty of focus groups are consulted along the way.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
