Link to Free Crochet Pattern (27 June 2016)




I've been looking for a pattern for a shawl or stole that would look dressy but would be easy to make. The On the Town Shawl is the one I'm going to check out. I think it would be great wrap to toss over the shoulders for a girl going to the prom, a bride or maybe someone who just needs a shawl for casual wear. I know, I'm early thinking about making a shawl for a prom goer but it takes me a while to decide on a project and there is a small chance I might change my mind and work on something else--ya never know...







Have fun and stay hooking!

Monday's Link to Free Crochet Pattern (20 June 2016)



Today's link is to an interesting shawl that is quite different from others that I've seen. Have at it folks and let me know what you think.

Spiral/Pinwheel Shawl.

Hugs my friends,

Backlog of Finished Projects




The next dishcloth is  made with the above pattern but the final round is omitted.









No pattern, I just made solid granny squares. The one in browns, is made with a "G" hook and is slated to be donated to a veterans home when it opens next month. All squares are 6 rounds.

This one is made with a larger hook (I) and is a throw for a special friend. The multicolored squares are 6 rounds and the solid colored squares are 12 rounds.

Blogland has slowed down lots and lots and I am partially to blame for it. So much of it has become commercialized and not just online friends sharing their creations. I will make an effort to post more often and I hope you will too. I miss you!

Take care and crochet on...
