For my Tia, who is celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary in a few weeks:
(for reference, the shawl is blocking on a queen-sized bed)
(sorry for the white on white, hopefully you can still make out the shawl)
Pattern: Blue Curacao by Doris Chan (Ravelry link, part of Amazing Crochet Lace)
Yarn: Lily Chin's Greenwich yarn in white, 60% nylon, 22% acrylic, 28% mohair. This was the yarn in the pattern and I happened to have some in my stash. I actually have enough for another one but I haven't decided if I should make the same pattern for my mom.
I really enjoyed crocheting this project. I was done in a couple of weeks but that was mostly because I didn't have much time to work on it during the week.
Pattern: Tiger Eyes Lace Scarf by Toni M. Maddox
Yarn: Neighborhood Fiber Co. Limited Edition: Luxury Sock Yarn (Cashmere & merino) in Raspberry Truffle. (Ravelry link since I can't find it anywhere else)
Modifications: I split the skein in two (good thing I have that scale) and then knit both ends at the same time. Originally, I used a 3-needle bindoff to join the two sides but it wasn't stretchy enough so I had to kitchener it together.
I've already worn this twice. It's only 8" wide but its ridiculously long, I think it was almost 80". It was too long to block on the queen-sized bed so I put a sheet over the carpet and pinned it using blocking wires.
