Shawl & Amineko

It's cold here today in Central Mississippi again!!!
It's 40 degrees F now, and it was snowing a bit a while ago. I get to wear my shawl I recently finished! :)))

"Broome Street Shawl"
Pattern: "Broome Street Shawl" from Lion Brand
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Bulky in Blackberry

This shawl is knitted from a long side, and I was lazy to do a swatch (my bad!) so it comes down to my knee in front, and I'd prefer it to be a bit shorter. Oh well. :) The shawl serves the purpose! It's super warm and soft. :)
This pattern was a mindless knitting which I really needed!


Also, I recently helped my friends crochet the famous Amineko (This site is in Japanese, but the pattern in English is available too!) designed by Nekoyama. :) I crocheted an Amineko long time ago, and my blog post is here.

Don't they just make you smile? :) I love amigurumi because none is alike even though same pattern is used, and you can never have identical results!

"Earth Mosaic Shawl"

How is everyone doing? :)
It seems like winter is really over and spring has come! We had lots of rain and I like it because it washed away terrible pollen in the air! I just wish we weren't sick! :(

I just wanted to introduce "Earth Mosaic Shawl" designed by Jennifer Hansen. I crocheted the photographed sample.

Designed by Jennifer Hansen, available as an online web bonus in Crochet! Magazine - March 2010:

This shawl is a beautiful outcome of the combination of hairpin lace and and regular crochet.

I have another shawl I finished, but haven't had the chance to take photos, AND it's too warm to wear it now so I have to wait until next winter to fully enjoy it. :( I'll take some photos soon though, I promise. :)
