recuerdos de infancia crochet shawl: ta-da!

Using 691 yards of Cascade Yarns Alpaca Lace Paints (colorway 9989) and a US E hook, my Recuerdos de Infancia shawl is complete!

This was a fun shawl to make, just like the first one I made years ago in sock weight yarn.  I’m really happy with this, and this yarn is SO SOFT.  Like, so soft it was hard to tie off the ends because the knots were so silky.  I’m impressed, but this is 100% Alpaca.

Can’t wait until it starts to get cooler so I can actually wear this, but it’s still averaging 90 degrees (F) every day (although I must say after the weeks of 100+ this almost feels nice).

Well that’s all for today, thanks for stopping by!

recuerdos de infancia #2

This crochet pattern worked up pretty quickly, despite using Cascade Yarns Alpaca Lace Paints (colorway 9989) and an E hook.  The pattern costs but is worth it.  It’s blocking now:

I’ll measure the wingspan once it’s unpinned from the blocking foam and I’ll post pictures wearing it, but in the meantime here are some closeups:

I’ll try to update soon, especially since I’ve got lots of projects going, but the wedding planning is really picking up steam and so I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to post between now and then.  Hopefully a regular amount!

Thanks for stopping by!
