STORY: Summary 2015, Lena

by Lena Fedotova (ravliki on Ravelry)

It's time to look back and summarize what I've done in 2015! This year has been wonderful! 

Two two-pattern ebooks, Winter Sailing and Anise&Liquorice, are the result of my search of stitch patterns based on short stitches, such as single crochet, chain or slip stitches, which would allow me to create finer-looking and intriguing fabric even with thick yarn. Winter Sailing patterns allow to use yarn with short-color sections and Anise&Liquorice patterns would look fabulous with thick yarn (the thicker, the better!)

I completed and published five crocheted shawls: the airy Velvet Rose, the lace-weight Parsley Field made of motifs, and the lacy Pressed Violets, based on the filet crochet technique. The colorful Sunset Echo is worked in granny quilt technique and the last one, Zirka, is worked in the classic filet technique.

Two summer tops in yummy fruit colors made of crochet motifs brightened my summer!

I started a new Tunisian crochet collection (entrelac), Mental Vacation, and continued working on another one, In the Shell. Introvert's collection (shell motifs). Two patterns have been added to each collection. I was also fascinated with possibilities of Tunisian crochet and the idea of crocheting motifs with this technique. The result is my Tunisian Flowers shawl pattern.

An old pattern of mine, knitted Bosnian Slippers, has been re-written, tech edited and published again this year too (and I am wearing them right now!). Have a wonderful, comfy, warm and cheerful New Year! Happy crocheting!
