Lunaris Shawl Progress & What’s New In The Queue (Some Crochet?? Really? Really!)

IMG_1562

I’m making pretty good progress on this shawl. I think I’m just so excited to be working on something smaller than an afghan that I don’t want to put it own until it’s done and then move on to something else. Also, this pattern is pretty simple, the only thing I’m not particularly excited about is weaving in all those ends. I feel about that about the same as I feel about seams. It’s a chore, but I guess there’s not avoiding it, if I want to actually finish it.

So you know how I said I wasn’t going to buy more yarn until I got through more of my stash? Well, that didn’t happen…

But I promise it’s for a good reason!! I went to the fabric store with my sister and was flipping through Knitscene’s Accessories 2015, while she flipped through pattern books and stumbled across the Grace Clutch, and we both thought it was adorable and so I asked her if that’s what she wants for Xmas, and she said yeah, so obviously I had to buy the yarn for it.

See? It’s just too adorable to pass up.

As for the other recent additions to my Ravelry queue, I’ve been suddenly swept by the mood to crochet. (Yes, I do sometimes crochet, although it’s been years, so I may have forgotten.) So I stumbled across these patterns….

I couldn’t really resist that tartan wrap, I am just obsessed with tartan. Maybe a little too much.
