That's gorgeous! And crochet does seem to go faster than knitting sometimes.

Thanks!!!!

The pattern is the South Bay Shawlette from Lion Brand - it's marked Advanced Intermediate, but since was my first crochet project I'm pretty sure that's incorrect ;o)

The yarn is a hand-spun, hand-dyed rayon I got in my recent swap. I really liked working with it since I'd never used rayon before. It's very soft and smooth and cool to the touch.

Here's a link to the pattern http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/90489AD.html?r=1

I'm going to try to take some pictures of it in the sun later today or tomorrow to really show off the beach-y/mermaid-y colors!

I'm not great at taking pictures, so there's a shadow across them, but here are some outdoor shots :o)

Excellent Evan - you sure have a knack for handiwork!! I agree that crocheting is faster....but I can't really get much beyond the basic sts

This particular shawl only uses chain, double and single crochet. I'm pretty sure if I could do it, anyone could do it :o)
