New Blooms



When I saw this yarn the other day at Joann's
(I just ran in to purchase 1 skein for another 
project I am working on..HA...really)

I knew it had to be mine



I fell in love with the colors

I thought this would be 
a good use for it 


Finished it today 
(its going to be a gift)

This time as I was working on the 
half flowers on the sides wrote 
down the pattern

I will post it in a couple days
when I figure out how to write it
so you can understand it 


While I was at Joann's 
picking up one more skein of orange 
yarn to finish this project
 I needed wanted yarn for this
shawl that I saw on scottys-place


Isn't it gorgeous????

** L O V E **
the colors

They had the yarn and it was on sale
 (yeah) 
started working on it Thursday 
Its coming along nicely


But... when I was was 
lurking looking around on the 
internet last night 
I found the Elise Shawl on Ravelry


Its so light and airy and the comments 
said how quick and easy it is
(one said 2 hours....really???)
  
The pattern I already started is with a smaller hook and taking 
soooooooooooo long

I grabbed another skein of yarn 
and started the Elise


I think I like this one better
and I'm going to continue on it
.....for now

I {{love}} this Deborah Norville
Serenity Garden Yarn

  4. Robin your crochet amazes me, so perfect! I am making Pammy Sue's Boho shawl at this moment, I am almost finished. A friend gave me knit pics sock yarn so I am making it for her. It is much smaller as the yarn is so thin and I really did not want to add another yarn, it will be more of a triangular scarf I think. Thanks for the link to Elise Shawl, that just may be my next project.
    Hugs,
    Meredith
