Nymphadora Tonks Shawl

IMG_3549

I could probably fill a laundry basket with all of my current crochet works in progress, but this week my Jazz Handz Fusion Fiber was just begging to be made into a crescent shawl.

I didn’t resist. After all, I was feeling somewhat burnt out after the busy holiday season and I knew that making a shawl for myself would revive my crochet mojo.

I decided to use Michele DuNaier’s Mine Once More pattern, which I had used before to make Le Châle Gris.  I set to work on Thursday and within the afternoon, I had already finished the first section.

This project was addicting. Once I started a section, I didn’t want to stop until I’d finished the section. By the time I finished the section, I’d be right in the middle of a color change, and of course I had to keep going until I reached the next color. By Friday night, I had already reached the start of the transition to black.

On Saturday, I finished it! I named it after Nymphadora Tonks from the Harry Potter books because the colors remind me of her.

Tom Baker Fingerless Gloves

Tom Baker Fingerless Gloves

I recently finished another project from my Karissa’s Fingerless Gloves pattern: this time I made elbow-length wristwarmers using Knit Picks Felici in the Time Traveler colorway. I think you can guess Who was the inspiration Four the colors. 🙂

This was my first project made with Knit Picks Felici, which is an acrylic-wool fingering weight yarn that comes in self-striping colorways. It’s incredibly soft and light, and I only needed one ball of it to create my Tom Baker Fingerless Gloves! I have one more ball of the Time Traveler colorway…

What shall I make next?

Baby Blaze Peplum Shirt (Crochet Pattern)

_MG_7087

I have recently become hooked on the designs of Doris Chan. I love her crochet philosophy: no seam, join-as-you-go, and yarn-efficient. After making a few designs from her book Convertible Crochet, I was inspired to design a motif-based shirt for my little sister Emma. In a few days, I designed and completed the Blaze Peplum Shirt. The project was yarn efficient, quick to make, and very rewarding, so I decided to share it.

The pattern for the Blaze Peplum shirt (size: 12-months) is now selling on Ravelry and Craftsy.
