Blocking, measurements, and hey, look!!! Something actually crocheted! I made a hat with some of the leftover yarn.

That’s the wrong side of my shawl because I decided to measure it while blocking. It turned out to be about 45X19 inches. When it’s totally dry I’ll be able to take pictures of the right side.

It’s finished. It’s a bit smaller than I wanted it to be, but it fits my shoulders nicely, is the proof of concept I needed and with some blocking will be closer to what I want.

This picture doesn’t do the colors justice. My flash keeps washing them out. I’ll take better pictures when the sun is out tomorrow.

More progress! I have 41 rows left to go.

First is a picture of the whole thing. Second is a close up shot to show the actual colors. And third are my improvised “point protectors.” I’m just using them to keep my stitches from falling off my needles. :)

Hopefully, I’ll be able to finish tomorrow.

So I bought some yarn and new knitting needles the other day. I have decided to try knitting a shawl. I found a nice simple pattern on Ravelry (HERE). I’ve finished 20 rows so far and I think that I’m off to a good start. Here’s hoping I don’t screw it up.

The picture’s aren’t great, but I will get some good one’s up in the next couple of days. 

P.S. Sorry for the lack of crochet lately, I’ve just been a little intrigued by knitting lately. :D

Hey Guys,

Sorry I haven’t been around for the month of September. It just flew by. Just so you know, I started a new job on September 3rd and as you can see haven’t been able to post anything since then. I have been working 60(ish) hours for the last 3 weeks with no days off, so I’ve been just coming home and crashing. I promise I will be around a lot more in October. I miss my yarn.
