I Apologize to the Crochet Intolerant

Yes, it's crochet! Yes, that's fringe! Yes, it's fabulous!

(Ignore the junk in the front yard. David was having a Tag Sale. I got rid of my Fun Fur and Red Heart yarns. Woo hoo.)

I used Prairie Silk in Capital Green from our trip to Brown Sheep Co. and a size J hook. I completed the first half while attending an outdoor concert. It was really easy and fast. Here is the pattern.

I really love to crochet. Sometimes my right elbow is so worn out from knitting and embroidering, that crochet is the only thing I can do without pain and fatigue. Thankfully, the new yarns and patterns are far more elegant than the crochet of yesterday.

I would love to be able to crochet like this. I have recently made a bag using granny squares so I am getting there very slowly. Your other photos made me smile too.

Oh wow, it's such a pretty shawl! I'm just starting to learn to crochet, and seeing projects like this is great inspiration.

It looks great! I love crochet, just haven't done anything in a long time. I think the last time I crocheted anything was a small sweater my daughters doll.

Ooo, that came out great. I agree, crochet patterns today are much more sophisticated than they were when we were little!
