I have been crocheting for a long time. My big sister showed me how to make granny squares and I simply flew from there. I did a lot of filet crochet with fine cotton thread. I had never done lace crochet work before and thought I would give it a go.
I used a laceweight Silk/Merino mercerised commercial yarn and it came up so soft and delicious.
Izumi "blocked" blocking makes such a difference to the finished item. I rinsed my shawl and then rolled it in a towel to get it partially dry. I then pinned it out on my foam blocking board with T pins and left it to dry.
This one is my latest finish and is called "Luna"
I like to crochet in the evening sometimes as it is very relaxing.
I hope you enjoy seeing what I get up to when I am not writing books or tangling :)
