Dahlia Shawl Crochet-Along!
|Well, I think I've dabbled enough in other projects for a while. It's time to get back to shawls! I've been frantically finishing up my WIPs for the last few months, all the while glancing at the Dahlia Shawl pattern from Interweave Crochet Spring 2011, not allowing myself to start until XYZ were finished (well…more like TUVWXYZ, but who's counting), and at last the time is at hand! I'm downright giddy to get started.|
Here's what I'm thinking for a schedule:
May 25th – June 6th: Get pattern and yarn.
The info you need to get started:
If you need a copy of the pattern, you can get a copy of the magazine here.
I'm staring at the 20 gallon bin of lace weight yarn I have in my storage room, and feeling a slight twinge of guilt at the thought of ordering more just for this project, but the Manos del Uruguay Lace has utterly seduced me. If I try to resist, I'll probably just end up ordering it in my sleep. But the great part about these Lisa Naskrent shawls is that they are easily adapted to different sizes, so I may have to make a smaller version as well, as a gift for a friend. I can stash dive for that smaller one, and appease the Stash Gremlins.
So let's start planning and chatting! Join me in the forums and we can get started!
