I enjoyed working the Seraphina Shawl so much and saw many laceweight versions on Ravelry that I had to make my own. I used some leftover Knit Picks Shadow yarn and really liked how it turned out.
Some of the shawls I crocheted were part of other crochet-alongs on Ravelry. This one was to learn how to read lace charts from a Japanese pattern. Not too hard. :) The wool yarn was some I had bought on Ebay.

One of my four sisters was married this year and my tradition has been to make a blanket with each family wedding. She requested a grey one so I selected Caron's Simply Soft in grey heather. The pattern is Elegant Shells by Terry Kimbrough (not available online). She has the best edgings.
