Right now we have a few cool (literally and figuratively) shawls, made from cotton or sugar cane yarn. Trust me, I'm in Arizona, I know cool. :oP
In fact, I wore my love knot sugar cane shawl yesterday... it was so nice! Nothing shades you better than something cool and slinky. lol
I've also started a new Ravelry group called Just For Fun - Crochet Q&A. It's a comfortable low-key space for crocheters with questions to ask and answer. If you crochet, I hope to see you there!
Wolle's Yarn Creations.
You've seen Arizona Sunrise and It's Full of Stars... the green one above as well as this flirty red one are both from the same Michele DuNaier pattern inspired by Downton Abbey.
The green shawl is full sized, but the red one is the shorter shawletter version, which makes a perfect scarf or cowl.
Did I mention they are both available on Etsy? ;o)
I made a couple other projects with this amazing yarn as well.
First is the Mary Poppins scarf I have wanted for some time. I'm not sure why I was waiting really, until the PERFECT cotton yarn showed up and I knew it was time.
The pattern is a relatively simple "v" stitch, which lets the color changes in the yarn shine.
