Crochet Summer 2016: Notes from a Novice

I can't believe it's already Crochet Summer! Last summer I worked on the 214ss-04 Sora Motif Sweater from Pierrot Yarns. I was a beginner then, and truth be told, I'm still a beginner because I never finished it!  

In fact, it's still sitting in my office on the shelf above my computer reminding me daily of its unfinished status. Too many other things have caught my attention. (You know how that goes!)

So call me crazy, but instead of finishing the Sora Motif Sweater, I'm just going to go big and take a stab at a much more complicated shawl pattern from Lisa Naskrent, the Water Lily Shawl from Interweave Crochet Spring 2016 designed using The Fibre Co. Road to China Lace.

Follow along with my progress with my contribution to Crochet Summer, Notes From a Novice, as I'll show my successes and failures in trying to crochet this gorgeous shawl.
