This was a fun pattern and by the time you're bored, you get to do some garter for speed, the the edging begins! Yarn held doubled throughout to try to have a thicker shawl and use up some stash. See the yarn details here.
This is the Radiance Shawlette pattern and I made it once before, but it was so small that I knew I wanted to try it again - but larger. Last the kit used a slow color change yarn (beautiful) but it was just by a hair I was able to complete it with the one… Continue reading Elf Shawl
I tried to make this shawl when I first started knitting and it was a bit too ambitious for my skills then but I really liked it so I kept it in my queue for later. I added more rows to the body and border and it's a very good size to be useful. The… Continue reading Forest Canopy Shawl
I was able to use up some older stash in this shawl that kept asking, "What's my purpose? Why do you buy so much sock yarn and never use it?" Ugh. I really need to shop less and create more - possibly even destash a bit. I just love all the sock yarn colorways people… Continue reading Irish Fantastica Crocheted Shawl
Added one of my picot shell borders. I love the Seraphina shawl - if you haven’t made one - DO IT - This is my 10th! The yarn was dreamy. Use the link above to get any details about the project.
Makes a great loooong wrap or a very bulky scarf. FUN. This scarf used 1000+ yards of leftover Lion Brand Heartland from my Small Flower Blanket and some cowls I made. Had a lot of stress going on recently - thankfully this project kept me distracted so I didn’t lose my mind! I just switched… Continue reading Floor Length Scarf
This yarn is amazing - so soft, but it's a bit fragile, so I crochet with it. It feels like it may break when blocking if you do knit with it, so maybe be extra careful. The picture doesn't do it justice, but I had to snap one and it was near 90 out (yes,… Continue reading Alpine Frost Wrap/Scarf
I tend to make the same things over, and over, and over..... Do you? I just get these favorites going and they're like old friends - familiar and comforting. The South Bay Shawlette by Lion Brand Yarn is exactly one of those for me. This one is in Malabrigo Yarn Sock and is a gift… Continue reading Across The Pond
Love, love, love this yarn Berroco Folio in the colorway Cushing. The softness made it hard to put down once started. The pattern was in Interweave Crochet, Winter 2008. Beginning at one side until I used 1/2 the yarn, then with the remaining yarn, joined back on the starting edge to complete the other side,… Continue reading Alpine Frost Scarf
LOVE cables and just about anything that has them. This pretty pattern was actually fun to make. About the time you're bored with the garter stitch body, the edging starts and it's kind of fun to do, so it went by faster than I expected. The yarn is acrylic Kraemer Yarns Perfection DK, so it's… Continue reading French Cancan, CABLES!
