A few days ago I received an order from someone in the United States. They are to be in a play and came across one of my items on Etsy that would be perfect for the character.
They wanted this skull shawl:
…but in a variegated purple.
Not a problem as I had colour options available on my Etsy listing.
It was a rush order, as they needed it as soon as possible, so yesterday morning around 9am I started work on it.
Last night at midnight, I finished!
Not sure how I managed it but I’m thinking it’s thanks to the beautiful day yesterday (nothing like sitting with some yarn and a book out on the porch!), the couple of hours of commuting I had to do for work (sometimes having to ride the subway is a productive thing), the few hours spent watching Back to the Future Part I & II last night (with friends who were cool enough to be down with my crocheting through the movie) and the fact that the shawl was made with a super bulky yarn 🙂
I think it’s the first time I have finished a complete project of this size in one day. New record!
Welcome to my very first available pattern! Please, please let me know if you come across any mistakes or have any suggestions for changes. This is the first time I have written out a pattern for others.
