I'm still chugging away at my crochet piece. I am enjoying working on this but had I thought about selecting a yarn a little longer I would have chosen a sport or even an aran weight because the heavier the weight the easier it would have been for me to get gauge. This is being done in a Malabrigo Lace so I have to work a little slower to get the double crochets close to the same size. This was really nerve wrecking at first but I'm use to it now. I'm still not able to work fast on this but I am able to work steadily without getting frustrated.
The yarn is a dream to crochet with because the wool lace feels so warm and smooth going through my fingers. It's interesting how differently you get to experience the yarn on the fingers with knitting as opposed to crocheting. This will be a shawl or shawlette. I just pulled out a second skein this morning but you know crocheting takes up way more yarn than knitting. I have three skeins of this yarn but two will be my limit for this project.
I haven't worked much with Malabrigo Lace but this is turning out really pretty.
Ohhh if I were two people I would have a slew of crochet and knitting projects done.
Anyway, have a Great Week. Talk to You soon.
