this pattern on the We Love Lucy board on Ravelry and have been meaning to give it a try. Last weekend happenstance led to me putting together a load of odds and ends of yarn I had lurking in my stash. I liked the result and so felt this was the time to give the pattern a go.
It is a lovely pattern and very well written as well as being free (which is always nice). The results go really well with my red coat...
I didn't work all of the pattern. Firstly my yarns were limited in amount and quite thick and also because I worked a much longer starting chain (249). If I had finished the pattern I would have ended up with an enormous shawl which would have been beautiful but not of much practical use to me so I just kept going until they were mostly used up. I think I have enough left for a pair of mitts which I will tackle in the next few weeks.
Now on to another new project. I've been wanting to make a shawl just to fling on in the evenings when it's getting chilly and I don't want to put on the heating. Its well underway now so should be ready to show you before too long.
Thank you all so much for your positive comments about my sewing last week. I'm definitely improving now but crochet is far more forgiving.
Have a wonderful week everybody.
