I know it’s been awhile since I’ve updated. I have taken a break on the shawls to make hats for a family member. This last hat I am quite happy about and decided to write in down and share it.
Finally, just over a month and a half of finishing it, the custom Dragon Scale Shrug has been mailed to Florida and given to my Step-Grandmother. My Mother informed me that she loves it and it fits her very well.
My Mother sent me a photo and I’ve been given permission to post it:
The white one that my Mother is wearing, is the very first one I ever made. It’s the one that I based my pattern from, and the reason why I learned how to do the Crocodile Stitch. I began it March 22, 2014 and finished it April 10, 2014. My parents came for a visit that summer and I gave it to my mom. When they returned to Florida, my grandma saw it and asked if I could make one for her also. It took me longer to make that one, starting it September and not finishing it until after the Holidays at the beginning of January. But then, I was big time multitasking in the projects at that time, too.
Both shrugs were made with Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Cotton in White and Natural, using the giant 2730yd balls of thread.
Sorry that I’ve seemed to have disappeared for the last month and a half, this winter has been pretty rough for me and I haven’t really gotten a lot of crocheting done. At the beginning of January, I did finish the hooded capelet, but I still need to take photos of it and write the pattern. The one I made is a multicolor in a silver/gray, gold and copper (non-metallic), and white. I plan on making a solid color one next. More recently, I have finally taught myself the Solomon’s Knot stitch, and I have been making shawls to sell.
I hope to get more active again in the near future, plus I’m hoping to get a new laptop this tax season, so that will help too.
Here is a sneak peek of the shawls:
