Piquant Shawlette

Last November I saw this gorgeous shawlette my dear friend Cindi made.  It was amazing… light, lacy, elegant… a perfect accent piece.  She shared the pattern with me, and I made one for my friend Elaine for our secret pal swap on CrochetList.  The yarn I chose was a heavier weight than the yarn Cindi used, so the shawlette was a bit larger.  Nonetheless, I think it is a lovely scarf/cowl/shawl thing.

I am pleased with how it turned out and I plan to make one for me.  : )

Christening Gown

I made a christening gown for one of my employees.  I finished it last night, and boy, what a project!  I think it turned out very nice, though.  The doll I use to model the gown was my Mom’s doll from her childhood.  It’s about the size of a standard newborn, making it perfect for measuring baby clothing.
