Sweet Pea Shawl

Moving has been absolutely crazy. I haven’t been able to crochet much lately, but I finally made some time on a day off. My mom wanted a new shawl for cool mornings at her newly bought farm. We’ve looked at tons of patterns on Pinterest but none seemed to catch her eye. I showed her the Sweet Pea Shawl from the Happy Hooker book, and she really liked it! She wanted the yarn to be Unforgettable in Tidal, which is my favorite type of yarn to use. I love how colorful it is! Hopefully she will like it completed as much as I do!


  
Now that I have finished my top priority project, I will be working on getting my Etsy shop back up and running. I let everything expire since I didn’t have time to keep up with the site, but it will be back up soon! More gorgeous scarves are on the way!

One Christmas Present Down…

And too many to go! I began this Christmas present thinking I would be ahead of my game by starting early, but I ended up messing it up. I was making this shawl for my sister. She’s a little on the bigger side, and I thought I made the top long enough, but the shawl seemed to be too small for her by the end. I almost ripped it out to make it bigger, but my grandma suggested I keep it the way it is and gift it to another sister, and it would be big enough for her. I agreed, so here is my very first project with fringe. I ended up loving the colors and the pattern, so I’m glad I could give it to someone to appreciate it! It’s another Crochet Today! pattern, from this year’s September/October issue. But at least I finished one project with only 11 more weeks until Christmas…

Favorite Yarn Project 1

I finally finished one of my projects with my new favorite yarn! This is the Monterey Bay shawl pattern from the July/August issue of Crochet Today! from last year. The pattern called for a size 2 yarn and this is a size 4, but I just used a slightly larger hook and made 3 less motifs. I just love how the colors came out!! I can wear it with any color, but it will look beautiful with a LBD. I can’t wait to wear it somewhere!!!!
