In the sharply divided world of animal lovers, I align with the dog people. That is, unless I meet a cat who behaves like a dog. I think you know what I mean.
In the world of needlework, I align with the knitting, but if I find crochet that behaves like a knitted object, I'm in. Just what does that mean? I had always associated crochet with worsted weight acrylic, stitches with a certain firmness. Nothing wrong with that. It's hardy and washable. There are plenty of knitting projects that fit that bill, too. My recent love is lace weight with drape. This week I've found my crochet project that acts like knitting:
It's the Seraphina Shawl (link for Raveler's) or free pattern here (for anyone), in Malabrigo Lace. In certain yarns and colours it might be reminiscent of Charlotte's Web's spine and scallop patterning. This is mine from way back when. And another one from not quite as long ago. My next Seraphina might just be done in Koigu KPPM for old time's sake.
