Crochet Shawl

I just finished making a crochet shawl that I might keep for myself, although I can think of a number of people who might enjoy it. The pattern I used suggested tassels along the edges. I haven't decided if I am going to add this element.

The yarn is a mill-end that I purchased at The Mannings last fall. It is 3 different fibers spun together. You might be able to see colors if you click on the close up.

Thanks to Jon for taking all of these great pictures.

On tap this week: WEAVING. It has been too long. I am going to head to the ArtSpace tomorrow night to get a warp ready for my tabletop LeClerc. I am going to make small lunch bags using carpet warp for the warp and recycled plastic bags for the weft. This is similar to a previous project when I made grocery bags with recycled plastic bags. I will probably stick to plain weave with this project to get them off the loom quickly. I think these will make some great gifts.

I am also going to get my warp ready for my multi-fiber shawls.
