The Shawl

This is how it started.
Section 2 continued.
Section 3...I'm making headway.
Section 4, beginning section 5
It's finished!
Hanging on the back of the rocking chair.
This is my version of Martha Simonsen's Critron Shawl. I saw the pattern last week on the internet and decided I needed to make one. It took a week. I think it's worth it.
I might even make another one. (Someday.)

Something New

This is what I started with... Three times. It just didn't look right. Too chunky.
This is what it looks like, now. OK, so I changed my mind. I'll make something else out of this. I don't waste any yarn. That is just WRONG!!!!
This is what I decided to use to make the Crocheted Critron Shawl.
The first choice just didn't seem right. I think I'll like this better.
When I saw this on Crochet Partners, I decided that I wanted to make it. I emailed my sister in Iowa and suggested that we each make one.
Like always...She is doing it faster than I am. And hers will be beautiful.
I'm still going to make one...Mine will also be beautiful.
I think I even know who I'll give it to when it's finished. I have a friend who loves this color.
Maybe I'll get it done for Christmas.
YES! I have friends. Look in the could be one of them. I'm glad you are.
OH! The Pattern can be found on Ravelry, It's by Martha Simonsen.
I crochet so that no one gets hurt.
Begin at once to live, and count each day as a separate life.

It's done.

This is how it started.

Moving right along.

It's done. This was not my favorite project. I think it looks like a bulls eye. Rachel said it looks like a rug. I think it's a round throw.

The day is beautiful. We have humidity, but it's still not like the East. It's good to be in Utah.

Discover yourself.
