A little bit of Lace Crochet for a change

 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.

This pattern is by Berniolise Designs

 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"
Luna, unblocked.

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 :)
