About The Two Clouds Above Nine

The second of two improvisations on a crochet crescent shawl. I was too focused on a second row of single crochet that I completely forgot the selvedge edge I had used on No Strings (I’m Fancy Free)  – evidenced by the uneven horizon…grr!

Still, I love the stripe pattern; it appears smoother than version one.

By the by…No Strings (I’m Fancy Free) met it’s fate after the last yard sale. I discovered when returning to storage, that the yarn had been broken. Not worth fixing. Services were extremely humble; no mourners in attendance.

And then mother resurrected No Strings (I’m Fancy Free)…the saga continues to be written, but the destiny will forever remain unknown.

Two Clouds Above Nine Shawl: Inception

Two Clouds Above Nine Shawl: Inception

I have this started as of February 9, 2018. Since then, I was looking for yarn to complement the Wisdom Naked Sock yarn I had from my stash. I finally found it, and on sale, at JOANN Fabric and Craft Store: Premier Yarns Deborah Norville Collection Serenity Sock Weight. I bought four skeins to match the quantity of Universal Yarn Wisdom Yarns Naked Sock I had on hand. After that I started searching for a pattern. I thought I had one selected in Wrap Flower Power by Martina Paulsen, but I was missing the required needle size. Thanks to my Foxy Knits connection, I was able to order the needles without problem.

Somehow I forgot I had selected a pattern and then there was some confusion with the project name. Remembering that I had wanted to develop my half-circle/crescent shaped shawl, I started crocheting with the yarn and that’s how the stitch method and pattern got changed.

It’s coming along nicely.
