Blue Curacao

Doris Chan is one of my favorite crochet designers. I have a couple of her pattern books and a few individual patterns, and she definitely knows what she's doing. This is one of my favorite shawls, Blue Curacao. I loved it from the moment I laid eyes on it, but always thought that it was way beyond my crochet capabilities...
...until this year. What changed my thoughts about what I could do, I don't know. But I have one of these shawls in progress. I finished the one I posted about last time, and I have another one of those in progress, too. Another thing I'm working on is shawl pins. Made from polymer clay and dowel pins, I'm at the baby-phase of this craft. I've made and thrown away more than I can count these days. Uuuufff. One day I'll get it right, people, one day. Hopefully sooner than later.

How lovely.
Shawl pins - go for it! I spent an hour on Monday looking for one in town and they were all wooden. Fine if one wants a brown pin, but brown doesn't always work.
