|Finding a monkey in our suite after a formal dinner.|
Well, I have made the second one! This one represents our honeymoon on a cruise to the Bahamas. Of course, it's nigh impossible to find a quaint yarn shop in Tourist City, Bahamas, and so, after the advice of a few friends, decided to spring for a representative hank from elsewhere. It is, after all, our honeymoon. And it really was a nice one, despite the cold weather and several days at sea without much to do.
I decided on Handmaiden's Double Sea Silk, made from 30% Seacell (which is based on Seaweed) and 70% Silk, from colorsongyarn.com in the colorway of "Ocean."
I'm hoping all of my vacations don't end up having to do with water, because I'm running out of water-based patterns, but for this one I decided on the "Ocean Waves" pattern on Ravelry, a crochet block, and nearly doubled the starting size. I absolutely love the result, though. A beautiful wavy look with a fantastical texture, the fabric nearly falls over your hand the way a wave might. Absolutely gorgeous.
