WIP Wednesday May 18th

See, I promised, I do have something new for this week! I have started making a scarf using the Crocus Bud Shawl pattern. Here's the shawl:

Pretty isn't it? It's a Valley Yarns pattern, and you can buy it here if you're interested.

I'm making it much narrower, as a scarf instead of a shawl. And I'm using a sock yarn instead of lace weight that it calls for. I made a swatch and blocked it, and I think it's going to be very nice!

I'm still working on my prayer shawl, hasn't changed too much since the last time I showed it to you. And I've made a few more charity blanket squares. I feel like I've been spinning my wheels a bit lately, time to get back in the crochet saddle!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I followed your link over from Tamis Amis :)

Wow, I love your swatch! The colour is fantastic and it looks like it's taking the pattern beautifully. It's going to be an amazing shawl when it's done.

gorgeous shawl - but I have to say, if you are using sock yarn.. expensive shawl hehehehe Lovely photograph of it as well. I agree with Sharon that is a very professional looking photo/display
