A Bowl Full of Raw Silk Goodness
Here is my progress so far.
I also picked Fran's pattern because her post was about Usk. This lovely little village is just a few miles away from my Mother-in-law's village and when we visit I regularly make David drive me over for a walk around the antique stores, a stop off at the garden centre and a bit of lunch at the pub. When I clicked on Fran's pattern from Ravelry I happily recognized the photos and her discussion about Usk and the Garden Centre. I sent a comment off to her so I will now have to pick her brain for good yarn/fiber stores to visit the next time I am there.
Lately I have been experiencing a bit of what I call a crochet Renaissance. Kat Streiby's Cadfael Shawl is a crochet workout. No individual stitch is difficult but because I have been mostly a vintage pattern crochet lover There were new stitches I had never used and the four row sequence pattern was never boring! In the last few weeks I have crocheted two of these shawls getting ready for Kat's pattern launch on Ravelry at at the upcoming TNNA convention. We are taking photos this weekend so watch for an update-I Promise I will be blogging much more frequently from here on out. Saturday will be photos of my progress and Cadfael photos/links etc.
