What I've Been Working On

I just realized that it's been almost two months since I've posted anything crochet related. I've started about five new projects and finished about three...not so bad.
Julia Vaconsin's Basic Mitts

I also completed a South Bay Shawl in the Red Heart Unforgettable. I think this is the Winery colorway.?
It needs blocking and better photos

This is my latest...
the dreaded Noro
I am proud of myself because I have waited two years to use this yarn again. This time I am using the Taiyo sock in the S9 colorway from Knotanotherhat. I just couldn't resist. This will be another Elise. One of these days I will come up with a shawl pattern. It's just hard to beat the Elise pattern, but I am getting pretty burned out on it.

To find these patterns just click on the links in blue.


  1. I love your shawls they are beautiful colours. I have been tempted to buy this wool it looks gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you. It is gorgeous, but beware, it's the most frustrating yarn I've worked with. The colors are just too beautiful to resist for certain projects like shawls that look great with the striping effect.

  2. Of course you can to be very proud of yourself, I love the shawl, the coulors are so beautiful. Great job!!

  3. Beautiful shawls! I just made a South Bay in the same exact yarn and color! :)

  4. I love the color you used for the mitts. And your shawls are beautiful, too :-) Good luck with the Noro yarn. I've never tried it but heard mixed emotions about it.

  5. I have GOT to try that South Bay Shawl pattern. Your are lovely.

  6. the colors are gorgeous, I love working with Noro and the color variations, very subtle and sophisticated, love to see what you come up with

  9. Your stuff is really lovely - well done you.

  10. I think the Elise pattern is gorgeous with that Noro yarn, and I understand how you feel about it. I have made six of them and I am tired of them, but you can not beat it for simplicity and beauty. I need to try the South Bay Shawlette, I ahve the pattern printed out and ready to go.
