Today I have accumulated 10000 hearts at Ravelry for my design Jordan, since the 5000 hearts milestone on . This is one of my favourite designs, and I have crocheted another Jordan in early January (with Euroflax Sport to replaced the discontinued Allegoro). Each heart means an additional special encouragement to me as I continue to design. Thank you so much to all of you for your kind support!
Just finished making the Jordan sleeveless pineapple top with Euroflax Sport in Lavender. I’m always amazed by how fast this top comes together. The Allegoro yarn used for the pattern has been discontinued for a while now, I’m happy to have found a delightful substitute for it.
Wear the Jordan top for the cold weather too, why not? 😀
Spring is in the air, it’s a good time for shawl time!
A hot pink version of the Monica shawl is a good way to bring color back to the pale winter cheeks. 😀
Monica – floral lace shawl
With a shape reminiscent of a water lily pad, Monica will stay put elegantly on the shoulders to wrap you in cozy warmth. It can also be worn around the neck as a statement scarf. The lacy pattern works up quickly from the center out, ending with an eye-catching flower border that lends a romantic flair to this gorgeous piece.

- Hook size: US size 7 (4.5mm)
Two of my babies — Iris and Jennifer — are now new “kits” in town! The kits (pattern + yarn) are now available for purchase on the Craftsy site – the Iris kit can be purchased here, and the Jennifer kit is here with many colors to choose from.
Iris – fern lace loop scarf (knit)
Featuring a classic fern lace stitch pattern and scalloped edges, this knitted loop scarf makes an elegant accessory to your wardrobe. Usage of soft contrasting colors and variation in the fern lace stitches set off the eye-catching lace border beautifully. This pattern is equally lovely with single color or tonal yarn. Knitted in the round, the scarf can be easily adjusted in circumference and width to suit your needs.
Jennifer – floral lace cowl (crochet)
This crochet pattern offers 4 fashionable sizes:
- a chic short version that works up quickly,
- an elegant long version you can adorn with a favourite pin,
- a versatile extra long version that serves as a loop scarf, and
- a cozy oversize version that can also function as a shoulder warmer.
The flexible pattern can also be adjusted in circumference, as well as in width, to suit your needs.
Ava – lacy shells cardigan
Featuring delicate lacy shells and romantic scalloped edgings, Ava is elegantly feminine and stylishly beautiful. With its gentle A-line silhouette and handsome three-quarter length flared sleeves, Ava is a polished pick for dressing up or down. The open-front cardigan is constructed seamlessly from the top down, enabling you to adjust the length of both the sleeves and the body as desired.

It seems like a long time ago when Clair was released. I have done lots of bad stuff (mouwahaha) with this latest project of mine – frogging many times and taking lots of breaks.
Does the stitch pattern look familiar to you? It is based on the lacy shells of Ada that I really like. I definitely love the purple with the lace. I hope you like it too. (Please visit again for more details when the pattern is released in this fall.)
