October Crochet – Day 10, Halloween Nautilus Shawl


Nautilus Shawl

My trusty model Marmie, wearing the Nautilus shawl in progress

This is the other project I wanted to get done for me this month. My mother sent me this netted yarn a couple years ago and I could never figure out what I wanted to do with it. This week, I finally decided to hunt down a pattern for it and I found Amy Shelton’s Nautilus shawl on Ravelry. I don’t normally wear shawls, but this one looked interesting enough, I thought I might try it. It definitely shows off the colors of the yarn!

For those of you wondering, yes, Marmie spends a lot of time in my lap. Apparently, she doesn’t mind being covered in yarn… or books… or my laptop… or anything else I might want to put in my lap if she wasn’t there. Marmie is more than just a lap kitten. She actually IS my lap.

I’ll be alternating back and forth between the shawl and the spider web poncho for at least the next week. I may sneak a quick amigurumi in there while I’m at it. But this year, I am determined to make something nice for myself.
