Make It Monday


I’ve done it again… It may be time to admit that my rebel ways sometimes annoy me!

I’ve run out of yarn just as the end is in sight for my ‘Smoke Rings‘ shawl… SMH. I did think it was possible but leaped ahead anyway. Oh well, an opportunity to start something else while I wait to hear back from a fellow Rav’r about buying details.

Smoke Rings so far:

My third project for National Crochet Month 2016 will be ‘Ile d’Ecosse‘, another pattern by Hélène Marcy for Annette Petavy Design. I was so impressed with the instructions for ‘Armorique‘, I found myself looking specifically for another of Hélène’s patterns. This is another stashbuster and another salvage project; the yarn I’m using is Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine – it seems I had a ‘thing’ for this yarn! – formerly of ‘Concetta’ cardigan configuration, I’ll return to ‘Concetta’ another time, we simply fell out of love, lol! The colourway is almost impossible to photograph accurately, a deep midnight blue with rich purple highlights, I’ve ordered some 8/0 Toho beads to embellish the border.

On the finished with no drama front – wait, there’s no such thing in this post! On the finished with the same drama front (I’m a slow learner or a fearless daredevil), ‘Laidley‘ shawl is finally finished too. I’m so glad to have this done and I think it’ll be added to my shop when I update next.

Must get to work! I hope Monday treats you all gently 🙂
