This & That: not one, but two FO's

This is a preview-This & That! I managed to finish not one, but two projects this week! One is my blue shawlette based on the Elise shawl. And yes, I say 'based on', because I suck at following a pattern when the pattern turns into 'repeat rows 5 and 6 for x repeats'. It usually turns into 'somewhat follow the pattern because the project has been hibernating for a while now and I forgot what the exact pattern was so I'm just winging it because I'm too lazy to get up and get the pattern from my harddrive'... But it turned out great anyway! I blocked it this weekend, and have been trying it out in the mild weather we are having now.

The other project is the supersecretpresentproject I have told you about earlier in a previous This & That! It's all done and wrapped in a bag and ready to go! I hope the recipient will like it. I had a lot of fun working on it, discovered some new shapes and techniques that work really well in a crochet doll and I think this is not the last WoW-related crochet doll I have made. Plus, I got to play with felt!

I'll show you both these projects in their full glory soon!
