Crocheted in striking hand dyed "Magpie" by Angie's Studio and "Clare's Red" by Miss Jane Knits.

Mobius shoulder wrap inspired by the album Red Sails in the Sunset by Midnight Oil, released October 1984.
Crocheted in stunning hand dyed "Acer" by Featherbrush Yarns.
Pattern by Doris Chan. 



Lace infinity scarf inspired by the album Like a Virgin by Madonna, released November 1984.
Crocheted in gorgeous hand dyed "Soul Warmer" by Jodulbug Creations (now Meraki Studio NZ).

Lace shawl inspired by the album Zenyattà Mondatta by The Police, released October 1980.
Crocheted in amazing hand dyed "Zenyattà Mondatta" 4ply gradient by Sheepish by Sarah, specially created for this showcase.
