This is the crochet obsessed version, apparently. Even the last two things I finished were crocheted. (Obviously I haven’t caught up with my FO posts, so bear with me. If you’re dying to know what I finished, I finished the Hanataba shawl on Monday, plus I made a hat that same day.)
This is for a CAL. I modified the original by using laceweight and only doing 2 repeats. I should work on this more. It’s the Openwork Shawl.
My apologies for this slightly blurry picture. I would usually try again but my camera’s running out of batteries and I need to recharge it, so no retakes. The yarn was a gift from Melissa and I had a horrible time trying to find something that would work with both yarns. I’ve frogged at least 10 times. Anyway, I modified the original to use 2 colors and it’s coming out nicely. If you look carefully, you can see where I stranded the yarn, but it’s not too noticeable. The pattern is Beatrice Scarf (Rav link).
Of course, my life would not be complete if I was not designing something as well. This is the yarn that was part of my dilemma not so long ago. I found I am 3g short (!!!) so I’m hoping this makes a decent sized scarf. As it is, I probably only have enough left for 3 or less iterations of the side motif, but it’s a mesh so it’s stretchy, right? By the way, I need a name for this. Right now, it’s just “Enmeshed Shawl.” Help me name it, pretty please? (Hm, I probably need a better picture of it if I want you to help name it, don’t I?)
So now I’m back to 5 projects and I haven’t really touched 2 of them. (Guess what! They’re both knit projects! Ahhh!) I think I need to go start a new (knit!) project to take around with me.
