I have had this pattern bookmarked for ages  http://www.angelfire.com/journal2/donisfuff/croshawl.html and am now ready to start once I buy the yarn. I am thinking of a mohair blend in black. I swatched last night with some spare yarn, and it came out nice, although there are a couple of omissions in the pattern. Anyone else thinking of making this?

haha, the irony! Im actually wearing the seraphina shawl I made right now. I havent worn it even once since I made it over a year and a half ago, but today I felt the need to be stylin' in lime:

Looks great! - what yarn did you use, and how much yarn did it take?

I used Simply Soft. I dont remember how much it took, though... Two or three or the large skeins, I believe

Very cool. I am starting on a seraphina for my grandmother. This will be my second one. The first one was like torture to complete. The written instructions were a bit sketchy with the left out CH 1s. Once I concentrated on the actual pictures in the pattern it became more clear.

Here's a shot of my progress... I'm using LB Homespun and a N hook. Hopefully I'll be finshed in a couple of days.

I've had it bookmarked for ages too!  I almost made it this fall to go with a dress for a wedding, but just didn't have time with school.  I didn't know there were issues with the pattern!  I'm keen to see others' experiences with it.

I'd like to start this as soon as I'm done knitting my first non-scarf item (the craftster circular shrug)... at the rate I'm going, it could be years  Tongue this is why crochet is so much better, faster gratification!!

There are two sides to a trumpeter's personality.  There is the one that lives only to lay waste to the woodwinds and strings, leaving them lying blue and lifeless along the swath of destruction that is the trumpeter's fury.  And then there's the dark side.

I am now on the regular repeat part of the pattern and am really enjoying it. There are some issues with the pattern, but there are photos of each of the beginning and repeat rows, so if you reference these you should be OK. How are you getting on with yours ejlown?

I actually finished mine yesterday. I have to weave in the extra yarn bits, but I'll try to get a picture up today. It went very fast with the yarn I'm using.

I'm working on one now. I'm using yarn I got on ebay. So pretty, 100% wool.  It's very frustrating with the errors and trying to figure out the sequence...
