Update on Tango Shawl

This has never happened to me before, two posts in the same day... but I have just finished pinning my Tango shawl and I really needed to tell somebody :).
I will begin working on the pattern tomorrow. Ok, here's a sneak peek.

Someone is selling our free patterns!

Yep, that's right! I have just found a Blogger's Blog where a person from Singapore is actually selling several other people's free patterns. So much for copyright. How sad !?!

Warm weather & satisfied customers

Firstly, I want to thank Pamela, who bought one of my crochet patterns from my Etsy store and sent me photos of the finished shawl:

It took her less than a week to finish, what a fast crocheter! :)
Not like me, that with the weather getting warmer and warmer I'm experiencing the usual change-of-season symptoms which include a slight loss of energy that makes any activity slow and rather difficult. At the same time, as a sort of compensation, my brain is working overtime and I have already planned the next 2-3 months workwise. I have set a deadline for finishing the ufos (at least the ones that are not going into the frog basket), including Tango shawl, for the end of June. Then I will take a break from shawls, well maybe not completely, for something new for me. As usual I will alternate crochet hooks and knitting needles: switching between these two "modes" keeps my brain always in full activity. More in the next post.;)
