My Latest Crochet Project

This is a project I started recently, and finished last night. I bought the wool for another project (a crochet animal), but after a disastrous attempt at that, abandoned the bear and searched for another pattern.

I like shawls, and I adapted a pattern so this one was easy to make. At the moment, given that we're still enduring upheavals on the family front, I didn't want anything too complicated or that might lead to frustration. I've got enough of that going on in other areas, including the story I'm working on. I'm at a crucial point in the plot and the romantic relationship and I can't decide if I've handled it the best way or not. I'll have to let it "simmer" a bit before I make a final decision.

In the meantime, I'll continue working on it, and start another shawl. Or maybe a stole.....

That's gorgeous! I love crochet, I live in an old house and a shawl seems right in keeping. It might be a nice distraction from all my studies, I might treat myself to a hook and some wool...

And with crochet projects, you can correct any mistakes easily, which means it's perfect for me, because I generally make at least one per project. :-)

Just one? I think of it like patchwork, your unexpected little hole or error makes it unique and personal and home-made.
