As some of you know, I had cataract surgery on both eyes this winter, and low-and-behold, upon pick up a piece of yard and a hook, I found that I could once again crochet.
This was about three weeks ago, and I have been going great guns ever since.
So I took up my hook, and using the patter below, began to make shawls:
ROW 1: (Dc, ch 2, dc) in the 6th ch from hook, *sk next 2 chs, (dc, ch 2, dc) in next ch; rep from * across to last 3 chs, sk next 2 cyhs, dc in last ch - 15 ch - 2 sps at the end of this row.
ROW 2: Ch 3, turn (dc, ch 2, dc) in each ch-2 sp across across to last dc, sk last dc, dc in turning ch.
ROW 3: Ch 3, turn (dc, ch 2, dc) in each ch-3 sp across to last 2 dc, sk next dc, dc in last dc.
Rep Row 3 until piece measures 72 in (183 cm) from beginning.
FINISHING: Weave in ends.
I am using Red Hear Yarn, which used to be a sort of run of the mill yarn, but now has lots of beautiful colors and designs at reasonable prices. So far I have used Boutique Unforgettable
Red Heart has tons of other beautiful yarns. I recommend them highly!
I found another pattern on the Crochet in Color blog that I would like to try, also.
Also, in the past little bit I have joined a couple of art journaling pass-alongs. I have enjoyed doing these, but I have found the group I have joined is not a congenial group, so I will go back to either my Glitter Sisters or Willowing for pass-alongs and art exchanges.
Anyway, here is a journal page I did for one of the pass-alongs.
