Co-Worker, Jessica Models the Kureyon Sock Shawlette

I always like a little crochet diversion while working on knit projects. I'm still working on my Kasbah Slipover and my Heartbeat Sweater. I was reading crochet designer, Amy O' Neill Houck's blog last week. She showed off a shawlette in Noro Kureyon sock yarn (of which I have a few skeins hanging around). Amy hasn't written the pattern yet, but I sort of figured it out by enlarging her photo. I used a basic "mile-a-minute" pattern to start and then just kept going back and forth in the granny fashion. After using two skeins of yarn, I crocheted a border design found in Doris Chan's "All Shawl." I like the results quite a bit. I see many of these shawlettes in my future!

Gawd, that's gorgeous. One day I hope to be as prolific and accomplished as you (not likely, tho).

Thanks for the compliments, everyone. Read the post one more time, Marianne and you'll see how many skeins of yarn this project took.

Yeah, I'm snarky today.

That's OK about your English Gabriela. I understand what you're saying.

Yes! Noro yarn has the MOST amazing color combinations. The yarn is the star in this project.

Thanks for the compliments.
