Trying something new

As you know I love loom knitting but creative juices wheren’t flowing so had lunch with a dear friend last week at Macaroni Grill. Its our Stamm Lokal….Lol for any Germans they know what it means but in English would be like favorite place to meet and eat..

Anyhow after  our lunch we went to Michaels for some  halloween ideas since she hs little grand baby’s  and she wanted some fun stuff for them play with and also so they could decorate at her house.

Of course no visit to any crafting store is complete without checking out the yarn they offer. She seen this lovely  yarn called fresh lilac ombre from  loops&threads Worsted weight and  bought me 4 skeins while I wasn’t looking. When she gave it to me  walking to the cars she told me that this was for me to make me something instead of the grand kids or kids……..lol

So see below

shawl begin

you can’t really tell the colors here and no clue what the line is upper right corner or those 2 round yellowish circles  musta been a camera issue….

shawl beginning

it has lovely shades of  lilac and greens  so I found a simple pattern since I have not done any crocheting since I don’t know when and 5 rows are almost complete.

Just love it and I must say it crochets up wonderful and no knots or anything in it..

so  lets see how this comes along…

it’s a chilli 61 degrees here in south texas, cloudy and overcast. Had some nasty storms go through last nite but it feels so wonderful outside  fresh and clean….

Hope you all have a wonderful week..

Hugs from South Texas

  1. The colors are beautiful! What a lovely friend you have.

    It's freezing cold here. I have on hand knit socks, sweater and when I went out tonight, a hat and mittens. I was sweating through it all.

    Snow Friday in Detroit. Yuck.
