another new project?!

spoke motif shawl

detail of motifs

cluster of four motifs


i'm guilty of being unfaithful to my numerous other projects waiting to be finished. but, i just can't help myself. crocheting these motifs is very addictive. each motif is only 6 rounds, and they are attached to one another on the last round. brilliant! so, i am working with paton's grace, and the pattern is from vogue's crocheted scarves. i started this with the recommended E hook, but switched to the F hook to get gauge.

sock fiesta


isn't that a pretty sock? i knitted this in about 2 1/2 days, and haven't cast on for the mate yet. i think i should make that a goal for today ... casting on. i have a ton of sock yarn to knit up.

and finally, here's my finished chickami. it was super simple to knit. i slightly ran over the 500 yds. the pattern called for, but i think i knitted a few extra rounds in the body. i would definitely make this again.

blanco & negro


ps i still have to weave the ends in ....

ooo nice crochet things. after saying for months "I'd learn crochet, but can't see any designs I'd actually like to make" posts like these are making me change my mind...

Where to start? so much beauty packed into one post! I have the same crochet scarves book, although I can't yet call myself rocheter (I am learning!) That scarf/shawl is one of my faves in the book. So perfect in that lovely cotton (and so perfect for Project Spectrum as well!)

The Chickami is one of the best ones I have ever seen. That yarn gives it such a great look. Absolutely beautiful result!

Best wishes,
Lolly
