Candle Light Shawl


Hello guys!  If you have been following me for a while, then it must have become obvious to you that shawls are my main interest. knitted or crocheted, I just love making them.  I know that knitting with bulky or chunky yarn is the field I  excel in, but whenever I see shawls and wraps online, that are worked with fine yarn, looking transparent and having scalloped edges , I find myself so impressed and moved that I have to make one of my own. In this post I present to this delicate shawl that was inspired by this beautiful lace knitting unit, and made with an elegant yarn with metallic thread to add a touch of shimmer.

Dragonfly Toddler Dress



For me, one of the most beautiful articles of clothing you can make is the toddler dress; they always fascinate me whenever I browse different boards on Pinterest. I make one for fun every once in a while, though I am a bit hesitant to share them. That is because the dresses I like to make have two parts; a crocheted yoke, and a sewn skirt made out of cloth. Most people I have interacted with on the internet can crochet (or knit), but don’t necessarily have the skills for sewing.
Therefore, my design for a toddler dress in this post is a fully crocheted one. Nevertheless, in my next post I will share with you the original version I made, the one with the sewn skirt, for all of you out there who enjoy both crochet and sewing.
