tah dah !

orange crush serape


i love it! i don't have a clue as to what i will wear with it. i finished this last night, and at midnight had it stretched across the ironing board, blasting the ferengi with steam.

the shawl is from vogue's on the go series _crocheted scarves_ book. i made the shawl in the yarn called for in the pattern, and though the book said 9 balls of grace, i only used 8. but, i almost used up every little bit of those 8 balls.

what's next in crochetlandia ? ... perhaps a crocheted dress?!

You do beautiful work. The shawl will be great with almost anything--wear it and feel beautiful. I also like the fish. So cute.
