Anyway, here is the said package. I loved how it came in a organza bag which added to the luxury.
A while ago I crocheted a beautiful shawl using the West Yorkshire Spinners winter warmers pattern. It is my intention to crochet the same shawl using my new stash of yarn. A wonderful reminder of a generous blogger friend.
This is the one I did previously which is for a gift. Sadly crochet is a little slow at the moment as I am only able to do a few rows at a time due to the pain in my shoulder. A few rows here and there soon mount up so I am pleased with the progress I am making on my current project. I am about half the way up the blanket and enjoying working on it across my knees as the temperatures here are starting to drop.
I intend to do a border on it but haven't decided on which one yet, something plain just to tidy up the edges I am thinking. What are you working on at the moment?
The chickens have settled in well and are enjoying strutting around and making friends with my neighbour.
See you soon.
Hi, I'm so happy you got your yarn and that you're so excited about it! The colors you chose are beautiful. That shawl will be gorgeous! I can't wait to see it. I hope your shoulder is feeling better soon. Lovely to see your neighbor again, she has a beautiful smile.ReplyDelete
The shawl is going to be lovely in those colors. The good thing about crochet is it is easy to put down and pick up right in the middle of a row. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
I was so happy when I saw that you had won Jennifer’s contest, Lorraine. The shawl you have decided to make is going to be stunning. You chose beautiful colors. I really, really like the blanket that you’re currently making. What a great way to use up some of the odds and ends in your stash. The smile on your neighbors face is absolutely wonderful. I think she would be a great person to have around.ReplyDelete
Many blessings, Betsy

What a beautiful shawl your new yarn will make. I love the colors you chose. I love the hens, and the neighbor! A bit of rice in a cloth bag heated for a minute or so in the microwave, then applied to my neck and shoulder helps a lot.ReplyDelete
