Crochet class result!!

My first crocheting, added to a long waiting cardigan knitted in Debbie Bliss Pure Silk from that same book. I have knitted better but it's all a learning curve. My older sister has asked for this and since it is her birthday on Saturday how can I refuse :)


I have finally added the crochet trim to my satisfaction. Another FO :D

Don't you wish Blogger will just let us reply to the message via email?

I'm using Skacel merino lace weight (not sure if that's exactly what it's called). Colorway is Blush and I swatched it with US size 3 Crystal Palace Bamboo needles. I brought it to show my knitting girls yesterday and they all agreed that I should go down one size. I'll be posting that soon enough :)

I'm thinking of using Swarovski crystals on them. Haven't decided yet.

And what's the Moon Dance Socks you are talking about? I bought the pattern for Moon Dance Stole from Melanie a year ago though...
