Secret projects revealed...


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.
