Oo, I’m cresting the fashion wave!

Well, for once – I’m not chasing the fashion trend with my crocheting! I’ll admit it, I made my first poncho after the things had been “in” again for a year or more, and even my sarong (hardly a new idea) was completed only AFTER CrochetMe had published a pattern.

But now, now these shawl-collared jackets/cardigans/shirts are just beginning to appear in catalogs and stores. At least, I haven’t seen them around much before. (Although I wasn’t looking…) But still! I searched in a few places, and they are eeeeverywhere. Here are a few examples, and I’m only showing a small fraction of what was there (the ones that most closely resemble the sweater I’m making).

Assuming Michael’s chooses to restock their Wool-Ease within the next two weeks…I should have my shawl-collared jacket, Genevieve, finished by December. Yeah, that’s right, baby, I’m gonna be stylin’ at church this winter! I –


Note to self: Find more reasons to dress up while cool weather lasts.

One more thing. I was looking for shawl-collared sweaters when I stumbled across THIS:

SHRUG-A-LICIOUS?!?!? Is that you? (Okay, it’s not exactly the same, but dang, it looks close!)

Three cheers for us, everybody – hip, sexy crocheters, our hour has COME!
