I found this amazing pattern on Etsy called a "Serenity Gown".  Follow my journey as I make this amazing newborn gown.  I'm not sure if I'll put it in my Etsy shop or give it to someone special for a family heirloom.  I am in the second week and am nearing completion.
 As I began crocheting the gown, I remember thinking, "This is a summer project!"

This is where I am today, June 21. :->

The hem detail took several days and left lots of strings for me to weave in. :-<

So, as you can see, I am now adding the layers that go on top of the mesh work.  The up-turned portion will be held in place with 6mm pearls.

And here's what it will look like when completed!

Irène in Red

I once saw this amazing mannequin on Flickr and just fell in love with her.  Unfortunately, the owner didn't want to part with her!  As fate would have it, one day, in the not too distant past, he posted that he was selling all of his mannequins!  Swoosh!  And the rest is history.....

Finished!  At last... the Katniss Cowl from  "The Hunger Games, Catching Fire" is complete and posted in my Etsy shop.  This was a lot of fun!

I've been working hard to finish this cowl!  I was able to find 3 more skeins of yarn yesterday and spent several hours adding to the bodice.  I'm nearing completion and then I'll have to try to figure out how to duplicate what has become a free-form design. (lol)

Katniss Cowl from the "Hunger Games, Catching Fire"

My high school took all the students to see the "Hunger Games, Catching Fire" and I sat through most of the movie trying to figure out how to make a crochet version of the cowl worn by Katniss in the beginning of the movie.  Sofar, I've only gotten as far as one round past the collar because I ran out of yarn and can't find anymore anywhere.  There must be a lot of other crafters trying their hand at this cowl!  (lol)

I'll keep you posted when I can get my hands on more yarn. :->
