FO: Piquant Crocheted Shawl

It's been a long time since I have a crochet FO. So, I think it's about time to have one now, isn't it?
Let me show you my latest crocheted shawl that I made using my own hand-dyed yarn (well, actually my husband who dyed this yarn), I called this shawl Piquant.

This shawl have interesting structure and very quick to crochet. I really really love the result. Plus the yarn is so soft and buttery so it added the enjoyment of the crocheting process.

New Group in Ravelry

After more than 6 months thinking about it, finally I braved myself to create my own group in Ravelry. Several people suggested to me 6 months ago, but I am too afraid to do it. First of all, I am afraid that nobody will join in. Second, I am afraid that I won't be able to maintain the group, and it will die like many groups that I know of.

However, 3 days ago, I don't know what came into me. Suddenly, I found myself open my own group in Ravelry. As today I got more than 700 members, so I guess my fear has no ground. Now, the only task is how to maintain the group in order not to die fast. I have several ideas in mind, something like crochet/knit along, mystery crochet/knit along, etc.

If you like my designs and a member of Ravelry, why don't you come and join me here.
