I've begun another crochet shawl this time all in treble stitch, I liked the variegated yarn with this pattern the change of colours. I found a white yarn with spots of colours in pink, lilac and yellow and used this yarn. The increase is four treble at the begining and end of each row and I had to unravel three rows as I did just two treble stitches at one end. There are thirty five rows and now I am over halfway. The yarn is 100g DK acrylic and started a second ball, I like crocheting shawls at the moment. And the next item I would like to make is a blanket/throw in blocks of colour of various sizes and knitted, probably I have been making purses and small items as well for a Market Weekend at Heartlands in Pool Cornwall in June with my sister we have a stall each for two days and it is free!

I just knitted a Country Charm Dish cloth made with cotton yarn and a crochet Flower with acrylic yarn this week. I will be busy next week as my two daughters are comming down from London to here in cornwall for a few days and we will be going my nephews wedding excited.

My crochet friendship shawl is completed. I used pastel colours in a cotton/wool mix cotton/acrylic and added a few more bought yarns some with Merino wool. I think all the colours blend nicely together, an ice cream colour palette. I made a little bag with two pockets for all my knitting needles and also crochet hooks, now they are easy to find with ample room for more and as I had cotton/polyester batting left over from my first quilt I used that with a little free motion quilting.

The rug is now finished with the fringe each end it didn't take long all together to make using up what I had available, wool acrylic and cotton. I made a few crochet lengths then put the motif I had made earlier in the centre to make a cushion, quite colourful I think with floral cotton material on the back. I have begun a crochet shawl, a first for me, with a few pastel colours of cotton mix yarn I had and as I don't like to be wasteful I used them all and will see how it looks as it grows. It has 67 chain stitches, so quick to do, it will be 60" in length. I will probably need to buy more of the same yarns or similar to finish. It is a friendship shawl this is the pattern. I have started filling my new room with a few craft books looks good I think so far.
