Last spring I promised to crochet a shawl for a mission fundraiser to be held this spring. I guess it’s time that I get crochetin’ if I’m going to finish one before the April 8th deadline!
I’ve chosen to make a Morpho Shawlette. There are several finished examples in Ravelry and, somewhat intimidated by the idea of crocheting LACE, I read many a Raveler’s project notes to see whether this is a really easy pattern. lol.
Well, I’m already 13″ into it, measuring from the center of the top to the bottom point, and so far it has been easy! Working top-down, once you get past the spider web-like beginning you just alternate two pattern rows. Obviously, I can’t speak for the ease of the shawl’s pretty border, yet.
I’m using a size G hook with the coral cotton thread that I got last year at Sal’s. It’s labeled 8/2, if that means something to any of you. I’d say it’s about the same weight or maybe a little finer than the #10 crochet cotton thread that you see at all the big box craft stores.
I’m finding this crochet lace project so enjoyable, I may be tempted to start another as soon as it’s finished. I certainly have no shortage of coral crochet thread! lol.
