Pattern: Accidents Never Happen Shawlette by Hooker Leo
Yarn: Interlacements Rick Rack (Fiber Content: 100% Rayon; Yarn Color: Scottish Lichen; Yarn Weight: 2, Sport)
Dimensions: 124 x 13-18 inches (not sure why there is a range; may update after I talk with her again)

The yarn representative for Interlacements asked me to crochet my Accidents Never Happen Shawlette from the Rick Rack. No problem. I just love her. The rest is history.

I believe this shawl is much larger than the one I made from Cascade Heritage Silk Paints, but won’t know for sure until I receive the dimensions from the yarn representative. The construction is Bruges Lace.

As for the yarn, Interlacements is my new favorite yarn manufacturer; the colors combos are divine and I love the fact that they actually name their colors instead of using numbers. By the time I finished this shawl, the beginning end had already begun to soften to a luxurious touch. The nubbies add a beautiful texture and it drapes wonderfully.

As for the pattern: I started to teach a class and discovered some wonkiness in the pattern, so despite the pattern being tested by a friend of a friend, I really need to make another to confirm the instructions are accurate. After making two of these, I have learned some very important tips for making this shawl and will try to incorporate them into the new pattern version.

Yikes! I just caught a big mistake: The name of this project was originally The Adventures of Raindance Maggie by The Red Hot Chili Peppers, but the yarn kept reminding me of water so I changed it to Water from A Vine Leaf by William Orbit.
