I rarely keep crochet projects I made. Most of the time, I dispose them right away once I’m done with it because I’m just really after the “journey,” not the destination / finished product. =)

Originally, I made this shawl for my mother-in-law. But I fell in love with it so I kept it for myself. =)

I decided to stitch the opposite sides, and make a poncho out of it so that it will not keep falling off. =) 

So let the bloggerposes and selfies begin from the corners, to the beaches, to the universe. =)

Obviously, this has became my most photographed crochet item since then.

I started this in February 14, 2019, the VALENTINES DAY because cliche! 🙂 Then I finally reached the end of the yarn this March 10, 2019. This took me almost a month. It feels forever. There’s really forever! 🙂

Making this is probably like in a romantic relationship. It was exciting in the beginning.

Picking the right crochet hook at the start is one of the most exciting things for me.

Then, it got boring, dragging in between. But then you can always find ways to make it exciting.

We travel together.

We coffee-date… a lot?!

I think we’re a great tandem. We made a total of 120 HEARTS, and infinite #bloggerpose! =)

Hopefully, this will warm the heart of the person who is going to receive it! =)


Upcoming Cebu Crochet Group event:

Perfect Valentine: Finding the Lost Soulmate

Pattern: Lost Souls Skull Shawl by Maryetta Roy
Crochet hook size: 4.5mm
Yarn: Black Rainbow by Yarnline, 243 grams

This pattern has been on my to-do wish list, and I even bought the yarn for it way back in 2017. Yes, I am that kind of crocheter.

But it’s not until ENVY hit me that I finally pick up the yarn, and finally make it. I saw a friend crocheting this shawl pattern, and I was envious. Envious is such a great motivator! I’m also that kind of crocheter. =)

So, here! HAPPY VALENTINES, no-more lost soul! =)
