I had found near my sister's house in Paris a small shop selling half price luxury yarns and thus I bought 8 yarns of a fine wool mixed with cashmere and silk. Coming back home I started quickly to use it to knit a shawl. I had no pattern, just seen on a lady wearing it in France. I regretted I did not think of taking a picture... it would have helped me a lot. But I must have photographed it mentally quite well as I believe that the finished result is very similar to the original.

I have been busy with a lot of things lately. Not just quilts. (That was the name of the first quilt shop I ever went to. I wish that shop was still open.) I've been crocheting, tatting, knitting and golfing. Yeah, that's right. I'm learning to play golf. I have gone to the driving range 4 times and I'm learning my swing. I've bought two books to read about golf and of course, I watch all the golf shows on TV. My husband has always played golf and I wish I had learned a long ...read more
Since getting home from our wonderful Mediterranean cruise, I've slowly been getting back into some of my stitching projects. I'm finishing up a couple of quilts, but first needed to get these crocheted-edge fleece blankets done. They're going to a couple of "tweens", so I think the colors work just right.
For info on how to crochet various edge designs, check my friend Susan's blog by clicking here and here and here.
Just one warning -- making these is very addicting!

But I feel like writing a post today to share with you some pictures of some crochet goodies.
I have made to date 3 granny blankets, one quite large, another medium and the last one baby size.
Before I continue I need to tell you about a massive ball of wool that I picked up in a charity shop. I go to the local charity shops in Dublin pretty much every day. I went into a couple of shops that I hadn't been in ...
I'm a self learned person when it comes to crochet. I learned to do crochet by reading written patterns and not by reading graph, so initially when i see a pattern in graph...it was a language that i didn't understand. Later i learnt to read graph too, and also enjoyed working with graph. But always prefered a written pattern...but this time i hoped if it was a graph when i read the pattern...hmmm.
I was never a great fan of filet crochet, because it never seems to be challenging and so i get bored fast ...
I am guessing I knit this dress in the early 1970’s. As I have been doing recently I knit it without a pattern. I had a limited number of skeins of a very expensive boucle yarn.
By taking my body measurements I was able to knit the dress with the amount of yarn I had.
I crocheted the edges with a cream colored yarn that was the same weight.
I even put an invisible zipper in the back of the dress, not an easy feat.
Knowing how knits can bag out I lined the entire dress. I matched the ...read more
