Cable and Lace Shawl

I’ve caught up on all my WIPs (though I admit to having three ends to weave in before I see my Mom to give her the vest she claimed as her own) and sat for a full 24 hours with nothing to crochet.

I did do some sketching at 3am last night -snoring dog and husband forced me out of bed.  So today I made a start on a new shawl and have the first few rows done and written!  It’ll be a cable and lace shawl, also done in laceweight.  Not for the faint of heart but created for the adventurer!

I’m thinking of submitting this design to a magazine just to say I’ve tried.

Capricious Ruffle Shawl – FINISHED!

Capricious Ruffle ShawlI finished crocheting the shawl earlier tonight! Oh, what a great relief it is. I’m ready to finish typing up the pattern but most of all, I’m ready to start wearing it. Even with the ends still dangling here and there, it’s already my favourite.

The pattern should be available here within a week or two, and on Ravelry shortly after that.

First Design

Now that the blog is coming into focus, my new email address is set up, and the yarn for my first pattern is on it’s way, I’m beginning to feel like a serious, grown-up crochet designer!

I’m really looking forward to finishing this first pattern: a funky, modern, lacy shawl.  If all goes as planned, the prototype will be finished this week. Then it’ll be typing and formatting the pattern, and making it available after testing.

But I can already say the next few patterns are planned & sketched, and a couple of them have been started!

This is really fun stuff!
