Lace crochet - Pink and cordovan lariat

This is the new lariat that has been ready for almost a month but I kept adding vines to it thus prolonging its completion and finally I like how it turned out. Especially the vines. It seems that I cannot get enough of them!
This one is made in soft pink and cordovan and shows my love for the lace crochet represented in the central part. The laced shells gradually turn into vines.
Next time I want to try making one in wool. Chunky wool so that I can use my biggest hook. Do you know how fast can projects with chunky wool be? Tremendously fast!
There is a nice weekend ahead of us. We have planned a healthy trek. Will show pictures. Promise!

I wish you a nice weekend too!

Your new lariat looks gorgeous, it's so rich Maya! It's awesome that you added all those vines, I still think these are better than a necklace ;-) Have a lovely weekend, Ira x

I love your lariats. So pretty! A healthy trek sounds wonderful. It's dusty outside in my corner of the world so I am tucked away inside. Hope your day is good. Tammy

another gorgeous lariat Maya, and these colours are beautiful!

Isn't it nice to have a beautiful girl to model it for you?

Totally agree with Shawn's comment, you are a crochet artist, all of the vines allow for so much texture. I can't wait to hear about your trek as well. I hope you had a fun weekend.
