Joan made this shawl from another luxury yarn, this one a discontinued line from Osterman Yarn. It is a silk, linen and viscose blend, which gives the shawl a wonderful drape. The pattern is from Interweave Crochet's 2011 Accessories issue. This interesting pattern works the opposite of what you'd expect, starting with the lace edge and finishing with the body. Here's a close-up of the lace edging.
Call this item a Jen trunk special--as in, the trunk of her car, where this lap blanket usually resides. She made it eons ago from some mystery yarn but it still looks great. And the colors--wow!
Melanie made these two baby sweater sets, one in pima cotton and the other in a microfiber acrylic. Any baby would be proud to wear these sweaters, and the parents would be pretty pleased as well.
Melanie also made this vest from something in the Willow Yarns line-up. She says she's not terribly pleased with the length of the garment, but you must admit it fits very well, the color and type of yarn show off the stitches well and has a suitable drape--what's not to like?
