    1972 - over 30 yrs
  1. Here's another shawl just finished last week. It's made with Omega Dalia Yarn in Amazonas. Very simple pattern with same repeat throughout. Just laid it out - it's unblocked. Used a little less than 1200 yrds to complete (3 rolls). It's called Terra Shawl by Ermval
  2. Here's another LilyGo shawl - Piquant done with Gedifra Jalia in a grey/pink. Gifted it already.....
  3. My son’s GF asked that I try to replicate a pair of black lace gloves she had purchased a while ago. This is my version of them. A bit challenging as I had to frog it to size a couple of times. I am thrilled with the end result. I used Estilo yarn with a size 0 hook.
  4. Stunning!!!! Congrats on the 1st Place win
  5. Streaks of Lightning was a gift for my daughter's boyfriend's mom. It's made with Omega Estilo in Multi Grey. Gathering Leaves (by Lily Go) was made with Omega Diamante in Avocado Green. Was going to keep that for myself by my aunt asked for a shawl and I sent this to her. She absolutely loved it.
  6. Thanks everyone - It's a purchased pattern from Annie's attic - Pinwheel & Mile-A-Minute Baby Afghans. You can purchase for about $6 and get the electronic download.
  7. Just finished this for my coworker who's due in about a month. Its a pattern from Annie's Attic by Elizabeth White. It was originally done with fine yarn but I used worsted weight LBY Pd of love in Perfect Pink, Simply Soft Eco in Pink Blush and Chocolate.
  8. Here are two bags I made since Thursday. Found the pattern link on Ravelry. Here's the link I used - http://bendbeanies.blogspot.com/2009...g-pattern.html The Olive one is made with Espiga Nylon #18 and the second is a cotton yarn I had purchased in FL about two years ago - looks like rainbow sherbet. Both are lined with pockets.
  9. I can't seem to be able to understand the pattern which is weird since I'm pretty good at reading charts...Would you mind emailing me the English instructions. Love the bag.....
  10. Those are all beautiful! Great gifts. Would you happen to remember where you might have found the pattern for the first scarf Pic #1? or the name of the pattern? I'd love to do one for my son's girlfriend.
  11. I just completed this blanket for a coworkers who's expecting her first baby this January. It's worked with Impeccable Soft Rose and True Gray. I didn't follow a pattern but truly like the finished result.
  12. Thank you everyone. I loved making this shawl and already looking through my stash to make another...this one for my kid's grandmother who will turn 80 next year and they're all heading to Puerto Rico for a family reunion - 80th Bday surprise.
  13. This has been on my to do list and since I'm heading to PR in a couple of a weeks I figured I'd make one for my aunt who lives there. It's from Amazing Crochet Lace by Doris Chan. I used 10 balls of Jaeger Roma in Raspberry and added about two more sets of pineapple rows in order to make it larger since I wasn't getting the correct gauge using this yarn with the I hook. I'm rather pleased with the results. It covers quite a bit and know that it will keep the chill off my aunt on those cooler winter nights in the tropics.
  14. Been working on this for about a week on and off. Finished the crocheting part need to line. Used Omega #18 in a rust variegated color. No pattern here just winging it. Don't know if I like it yet.
