So, for anyone who has actually been wondering what those "secret" projects of mine have been, here's a glimpse at the primary one:
One of my best firends is getting married later this month, and it's a Hawaiian themed wedding. So it's outdoors and her dress is a halter-top. I thought she might like something to keep warm during the reception and all, so I made her a shawl.
Here's a closer view of the pattern:
I used the Half-Moon Shawl pattern from Lion Brand Yarn. I am really happy with how the shawl turned out, but in all honesty, I don't think I will be using this pattern again. IMO it really wasn't very clearly written and it was more frustrating to follow than most of the patterns I use.
Next up I will be making shawls for myself and the other bridesmaids in the ceremony. I am going to give the Easy Triangle Shawl a pattern for these. I'll be using Vanna's Choice in Seaspray for our shawls. JoAnn's was having a sale on Vanna's Choice 2 for $5, so I ordered enough for the shawls and it should be arriving tomorrow. I can't wait to get started on these.
Other than that, there's not much going on. I am just waiting for some other yarn I ordered for my first attempt at a sweater.
I hope you're all having a great week. Happy crocheting.
