Hi. I haven't posted in a long time. I have decided that in 2014 I will crochet as many garments as I can. So far I have finished :

this cardi.




And a little shrug (ends weren't woven in when the pics were taken, so I should make new ones ):




and this sweater :

All three garments are very beautiful and look fabulous on you!! Would you mind sharing where you found the patterns, as I've been looking for items like these! Great work!

Thank you! I made them from scratch but I blogged the whole process to make a kind of informal tutorial. I could translate them if you want.  The only one I didn't blog was the train cardi but I could try to make a short summary if I succeeed in reading my scarce notes. It all boils down to trying it a lot on to make sure it fits and correct the boo boos as soon as they happen, rather than following a set number of stitches.

Thank you and I'll take a look at your blog  Smiley You do really fabulous work! I just may have to attempt the first one as soon as I'm done with the baby blanket I'm making.

LOVE these.
I don't hook too many garments myself, so I am forever in awe.

My favorite is the shrug!
